Over the weekend I heard that Tom Moore of Gardner, MA passed away last Friday - his health had not been the best over the last couple of years. Tom worked at Lang's years ago as a service tech and many on here may remember him from his time there. Tom was also a legendary speedster guy - at least in this neck of the woods. His knowledge of Model Ts, speed secrets, period speed technology and early racing history was encyclopedic. On numerous occasions, Tom helped me out with both parts and advice; he was incredibly generous with his time and his parts stash. A visit with Tom was always entertaining - filled with anecdotes, history lessons and a bit of wry comedy. It was also punctuated with multiple exhortations to "forget the doodlebugs and build a speedster....I'll get you started. Go out back to one of my sheds, grab a frame, a front end and a rear end...." Rest in peace Tom - you'll be missed.

Oh, this just breaks my heart. I worked with Tom at Lang's and he was a Prince of a Man, extremely knowledgeable, and just a hoot to work with. He had likely forgotten more about Model Ts than most of us will ever know. We are diminished.

Lang's Old Car Parts is deeply hurt by the loss of Sherm and Tom. Tom Moore was an amazing man to work with and a great Model T guy. He has been with Lang's since the very beginning. I have heard stories of when Jim Lang was a little boy and Tom working at Lang's when it was in the basement of the house in Ashburnham, to stories of the days he flew airplanes and all the stuff he did with Model T's He always had a history question for me every day we worked together. He was a great man to work with and a good friend and Model Ter. Lang's will miss him greatly.
