Model T Ford parts business will start Liquidation soon

Post by FATMAN » Fri Nov 20, 2020 4:17 pm

Bob's Antique Auto Parts will start next month liquidating the manufacturing part of the shop, The business is going up for sale if no takers we then will start with retail items, it will take time and a lot to go through
the reason is
It saddens me to let you know that our machinist of over 40 plus years has passed away a few minutes ago. Glenn Larson, tool and die maker and one of the best. About five weeks ago he came down with a fever which turned out to be pneumonia, after going to the doctor he got the test and was told he had Covid, he has been on a ventilator for three weeks and never came out of it, a lot of you are running your cars with parts he made right here in our shop. our prayers go out to his kids, Bob
We will advise soon, thank you, Bob

Bob,

On a positive note perhaps this will be a Blessing for you and your wife.

You have made more of your fair share of contributions
to the Hobby.

Now it is time for you both to enjoy retirement.

Very sorry for you loss Bob,

Thoughts & prayers to Glenns' family as well.

I always enjoyed the times I got to spend with you folks when I loaded customers cars. I also appreciate you recommending me to them! Hopefully I will get to see you again before you close.

God Bless
Bill

Hi Bob. Prayers and condolences to Glenn's family. Am also saddened to learn that you will no longer manufacture your products. On a a lighter note, I remember when your were a slim long haired 'hippie' kid helping your Dad when I came to buy parts in Loves Park. Those were the days. Good luck in your chosen endeavors.
