Today I took our 1907 Ford K to the St. Mark's annual Father's Day car show. We used to go every year, however life interfered the last couple of years. Each year our main competition for early brass era cars was Homer Edmiston. Homer became a friend and mentor. Many on this forum will remember Homer from Chickasha or other events. He passed a few years ago and the organizers started the Homer Edmiston Memorial Trophy. We won it this year providing a bittersweet moment. Homer was a fellow many in the old car hobby knew and loved. (although few beat him on a parts trade...)

Homer provided me the history of our 1910 2 cylinder REO that I bought un-restored in 1973 from Don Cleveland in O'Neal Nebraska. Homer once owned a lot of 1 & 2 cylinder REO parts along with everything else. We sold him a Brush transmission years ago.

Homer and Don Cleveland and I were on an HCCA tour together in Colorado some years ago where they were able to finally see our REO (Now Restored) once again.

Congratulations Rob on the award, The car looks fantastic, and I'm sure that Homer would be proud of you being given this award.
Homer was a great guy and is greatly missed

I do not know Homer well, but did speak with him several times at Chickasha. I never knew him to complete a full sentence before beginning the next one. Such was his zeal and enthusiasm for the antique car hobby. These are the folks that make the hobby fun. They are in ever shortening supply. Miss them all.
