At age 95, Virgil is a friend of a friend from Red Wing, MN. I crank started my unrestored 1914 (my 1913 restored is not quite finished). He got behind the steering wheel before I could even give him a refresher course. He pushed in the C pedal and away we went. He was absolutely thrilled to be behind the wheel again, like no time had passed.
Virgil is a very sharp, retired heavy equipment operator. He grew up on a hilly little farm between Goodhue and Red Wing, MN. His family had an 1918 touring first, then a 1920 touring. Then his family really "moved up in the world" when they had a 1923 2 door sedan. All their neighbors drove used Ts, except one of the wealthy neighbors drove a Buick touring.
Virgil was a combat infantryman in WWII. He fought under General Patton("Blood and Guts")in France and Germany.
Great story, Good Luck Virgil hope your around for a long, long time.
Happy motoring, Warren
That'll keep him young! Congratulations, Virgil.
I posted on your other thread that didn't have a picture. I can see from the smile Virgil had an awesome time
Great to see a "young timer" enjoying an old car! Great to see that smile on him. Hope many more to come.
Any relation to George at C.E. Niehoff?
