Has anyone information on Willie Cordis? I haven't notice any postings from him for a while now. Hope he's alright.
Don, I remember reading at one point, quite awhile ago that he was ill, possibly with Cancer but not certain. One of his sons posts here occasionally. I enjoyed his posts and insights. Really liked his aftermarket bodied coupe too.
Oh man... That is sad. He was a great forum friend to me. He taught me thru email and a couple of phone calls how to properly rebuild the rearend on my '27 Fordor. I have been indebted to him ever since. God bless you Willie !! Thx Gary.
Thanks Ed, I had no idea.
I live in the Houston area, but haven't heard much about Willie. I talk to Jeff, one of his sons about once a month and will ask him. Until then, maybe Jeff or Luke will see this and chime in.
I spoke with Willie a few months ago at the Texas T Party. He is beset with multiple maladies. As Terry identified above, Willie and Gay Nelle have 2 sons; both of which are very active with Model T s. Luke has even been a Director of the MTFCI and does participate here as a Forum Friend. I don't know that Jeff can read or write but he is also a great Model T guy. Prayers for the family...
George, That comment about Jeff is 'cold'. If he's handicapped in any way, you better hope he doesn't read this.
He's not handicapped, and he's a good sport.
Yeah Terry. Jeff knows I'm just pulling his chain. Not only is he a "good sport", he is wildly successful in his chosen career and, like brother Luke, has inherited an all-consuming love for Model Ts from father Willie Cordes.
