    I have a Model A Ford ( 1928) roadster that the Marriage Certificate of Mina and Thomas was found in. Green with a white top, I am looking to find more authenticity of the original owner. This vehicle has been in storage for about 30 years. I would love to know more about this vehicle or how I can authenticate the Edisons’ ownership of it. Thank you for doing what you can about this vehicle.
