Above and below, Lee Guizzetti of Ishpeming sits in his 1972 Buick Centurion.
ISHPEMING - A car is really an extension of your personality, Lee Guizzetti said.But sometimes you can't afford your personality.Guizzetti lives within his means even though he fell in love with luxury nearly 40 years ago.That's when he had his first ride in a convertible and the feel of riding in the open air hooked him.He was a university freshman when he bought his first top-down rig: a 1962 Ford Galaxy.He went through one after another until acquiring number six in 1973.It was a 1972 Buick Centurion and turned out to be a keeper.The 57-year-old Ishpeming insurance agent is its first and only owner.He flew to Milwaukee to buy it off the showroom floor of Rank and Son and drove it home to the Upper Peninsula.The icy blue Centurion with its roomy - to say the least - white interior was so pretty the dealer didn't have to twist any arms to make the sale; Guizzetti already had his mind set on buying it.That year he had read a newspaper story about the lessening demand for convertibles.Automakers were going to stop manufacturing them."They were not a hot item," he said."It was all sunroofs and t-tops."He decided he wanted to get one last convertible and chose the Centurion.
Born and raised in Negaunee, Guizzetti knows this isn't the most convertible-friendly territory in the world.He joked that there are only three to six days a year when the weather is nice enough that you can take a convertible on the road.He's never used the Centurion for primary transportation.It's always been his second car and has never been on the road in winter or in anything less than 75 degree weather.Or like he said: "It's not your grocery-grabber type."No, it's not for family errands.The smooth-riding hunk of steel has only 55,000 miles on the odometer and most were put on in the early years.Now Guizzetti averages 500 easy parade and joyriding miles a year.It's a good thing because the 455 cubic inch engine uses high octane and leaded petrol.A substitute gasoline additive has to be purchased to feed the creature.Interested in history, Guizzetti said he likes owning this heavy piece of Americana.His first career was that of a government and American history teacher in Ishpeming.He was a low seniority staff member whose position was cut when schools consolidated after the building of Westwood High School. Married at the time and with three children, the family didn't want to leave the area so he parlayed his skills into the insurance business and now is owner of Central Insurance Agency in Ishpeming.But when he gets away from the office, Guizzetti takes long cool rides on hot days down U.P. highways where one can imagine deer stopping in their tracks wondering if dinosaurs will be the next to return.

Incumbent Jim Nankervis and challenger ..., 4 Aug 2008 [cached]
Incumbent Jim Nankervis and challenger Lee Guizzetti will square off for a chance at the township supervisor's seat while incumbent Peggy Clark and challenger Kristin Thornton will vie for the treasurer position.
Guizzetti, who is challenging for the position of supervisor, cited his history of public service and politics, including serving on the absent voter counting board back in his high school days, a member of the city charter review committee for the city of Ishpeming, five terms as a member of the Ishpeming city council, chairman of the Ishpeming Transit Authority and Ishpeming Commission on aging as well as a member of the committee that created Marq-Tran.
"Stagnation is the single biggest stumbling block to the growth and prosperity of Ishpeming Township," said Guizzetti."For the past 20 years, the growth and development of the township has been unplanned and sporadic.
