Lenny Rubino would have turned 83 this summer. He was a hardworking Long Island gentleman and nothing was more important to him than family. **Except his bright red convertible MG roadster.** The stories of this car are family legend—Mr. Rubino cruising the East End’s Route27, top down, baseball cap on, happy as a clam. The kids loved to blast the radio. This is the car’s license plate— a 1964 World’s Fair special edition.
We photographed the plate for his daughter, @dennyrubino, as a larger-than-life photographic tribute to her dad. It had been tucked away for nearly 20 years.
She admits he loved that car more than anything. But also notes he had such a big heart, there was enough to go around.
Thank you, Rubino family, for sharing this symbol of your dad’s joy with us.
