Recently lost a friend, Walt Pazda from western New York. He was a great guy and an avid Model T & A collector. Walt retired about 25 years ago and got the car bug real bad. Since then he amassed a collection of over 25 T's & A's with a few other cars in the mix to keep it interesting. Last fall Walt mentioned his great grand daughter took a video of him for a class project. She posted it on YouTube and it really shows his passion for collecting and restoring a car from a pile of parts. It's a great tribute to Walt.

If you take the time to watch the video, leave a comment on Walt, the family would appreciate it.

I posted a comment. Clearly someone who was "one of us."

Dan nailed it. I thought of that very saying a few years ago when Vic Labantschnig - "Mr. Model T" in St. Louis - died at the age of 99.

If he didn't live 10 years longer because of working on all those cars he probably got around better and was more active and lived a better life than if he'd done nothing.
I wish I could have been his next door neighbor the last 25 years.

Though I only knew him for a few minutes from a very short video, I found him to be an inspiration. Rest in God's arms Walter.
