DEAR HARRY: My wife's uncle was a widower with no children. Last month, my wife got a letter from his lawyer telling her that she was his nearest relative and had inherited his entire estate. We went to visit his farm just outside Honey Brook with a real-estate appraiser to see what she had inherited. We discovered an old Pierce-Arrow car in his barn that he kept in mint condition. I guess he rarely used it because of the culture of his area. The odometer reads only 3,200 miles. My wife wants to sell it, but I'd like to keep it as an antique car for fun and appreciation. It's worth in the area of $40,000 now, and we don't need the money.
