PHOTO: Otto’s Auto

Ed Otto stands for a portrait in front of his wife, Grace Romprey's 1951 Dodge Coronet, outside his Belmont home. Romprey left the car at home while at work on Thursday, March 28, 2013, so Otto could change the oil, but he decided to postpone due to the weather. When he was 8 years old, he began working and learning about cars at home with his father and now owns a ramp truck he uses to pick up antique and classic cars. A few years ago, a friend and Otto found and fixed up the 1951 Dodge Coronet and his wife fell in love with it at first sight, he said. "It's all about driving it and having fun," Otto said, adding that the car has some modern touches for a more comfortable and safe ride. Also standing in front of the car is their dog Dutchy. "She'll get in any car she can," he said. "She's 16 years old and loves the ride."
