In attendance at the Man Up, Fuel the Fight on prostate cancer car show at Boardman High School on Sunday was Boardman native Nancy Drescher. She showed in style in a car she simply loves.

"I have always wanted a Rolls Royce," she said.

Seven years ago, Nancy and her husband, Warren, found a mint 1985 Rolls Royce Corniche convertible while at their winter home in Florida. Nancy loved the color and for her that was reason enough to buy it. Occasionally it would appear at local car shows. Warren passed away four years ago, but Nancy keeps the passion going.

Besides her Rolls Royce, Nancy had another interesting vehicle entered into the Boardman show on Sunday. It was a 1955 Morgan that her husband raced at Nelson Ledges and other northeast U.S. race tracks. The car was built by David Frease of Canfield.

"The car was literally brought to my house in five-gallon buckets," Frease said.

He said it suffered a terrible wreck in its last race, but Frease didn't give up on it. He totally restored it and has made it show worthy. Nancy said she has made Frease the caretaker of the Morgan, and he now helps show the car at various events like Sunday's show. Both Frease and Nancy were happy when they heard the Morgan was the winner of the import class on Sunday.

Nancy said she loved attending car shows when her husband was alive, and she still loves attending with her friends.
