Betty Trzpuc - 1959 Ford Retractable Skyline Hardtop

Betty’s father, Leo Ceglowski, bought the car new, making sure to keep it in the family over the years.

When Betty attended Trinity Nursing School, her father loaned her the Skyliner to drive until he moved from Portal to Minot.

After Betty’s father gave her the car in 2001, she kept it garaged until recently deciding to restore it. Taking it from its original white with a red top to white and baby blue, Betty’s Skyliner earned the recognition of her fellow Cruisers.

Betty became a member of the Dakota Cruisers a year ago.
