Tim Johnstone has passed away

By Christy Johnstone Collier

.The Model A world lost a good one today. If you ever had the opportunity to kick tires with him, you know. There was no better mentor than my dad, and his passion for the Model A Ford was something that has forever changed my world. As my mom and I don't know the extent of my dad's Model A network, I'm relying on all of you to please share with those you think would like to know. AHOOGA.

Christy said it best. He truly was a ‘good one’.

Re: Tim Johnstone has passed away

At the MARC Meet in San Diego I asked Tim and a friend if they would like to share my table at the very overcrowded Restaurant. I had no idea who he was other than someone looking for dinner with his friend. The first thing I noticed was his wonderful deep voice. By the end of the evening I was blown away by his knowledge and eagerness to share. Sadly, another "good one" is gone but not the knowledge he so willingly shared.

Tim was a member of the Judging Standards Committee and very involved in the last re-write of the RGJS. Lots of his knowledge is preserved in this document.

Any of us that own a Model A Station Wagon or in my case a Station Wagon restoration will always miss him. For any question we had he always shared an answer. His dedication to the Model A Station Wagon Special Interest Group was truly special and a gift to all of us. I hope some day to see him inducted into to Model A Museum Hall of Fame. To his family, prayers and our deepest sympathy.

Simply an amazing man that knew those station wagons inside and out. He would answer every question no matter how juvenile it was. My condolences to the Johnstone family. We have lost a bunch of good men in the hobby recently. Tim Johnstone, Steve Ryan, Alex Janke, and Tim Kelly. I bet they are all giving Henry a run for his money!

FYI..... the Woody Wagon Special interest group will continue. There will be a transition period. Please be patient. More news to come before Thanksgiving.
