John was in a home for about the last 3 years but i remember him well! About the nicest person you would ever meet he was a parts man at the local Chevy dealer.He told me when it was slow one of his job's was to go to the train station and service the old model T hack that was still in use in the late 40's! Bud.

Sorry for your loss. Old friends have a bad habit of disappearing on us.

Seems to be a lot of that going around lately. My condolences to you, his friends, and his family. Your loss is our loss.

We have been losing car people and relatives for as long as I can remember. I think we owe it to them to keep the spirit going. Drive your T when the weather gets good. Or sooner!

Rest in peace John.

Ya, I gotta do more with keeping those old turkeys on the road.
Monday I drained the gas out of a nice model A couple and checked the car out and put the small battery charger on it. It charged for 6 hours and the owner disconnected it.
Today I put in a gallon of gas, started it up and drove to the gas station with the 87 year old owner in it with me.
She said her husband bought it 30 years ago but she never rode in it.
They had a model A pickup before he retired. He died 5 years ago.
The old gal had a great time riding with me today.
She laughed & cried at the same time.
Her daughter that lives near has driven it but it was always over heating, etc.
I hope to get it reliable so they can use it more and not have the trunk full of bottles of water.
I have decide to use my '26 touring as a daily driver when summer comes this year.
