Default Thank you to Don Rogers

A big thank you to Don Rogers! He is a very knowledgeable and helpful individual. I know this is not news to Barn members, but still needs to be stated IMO.

Don,
I've held back commenting a bit as I know you are a humble man. Yet another redeeming quality.

The reality is, you deserve the accolades. Heck, I can't help but think of all you've taught me to date about my '36 roadster.
Thank you Don.

That's a big 10-4 on Don, Tony, Jerry, David G and Pete. You folks make this a wonderful classroom to learn V8 stuff. Many thanks !

Just for information Don and David G have done those great books for the Early Ford V-8 Club and it was done without compensation. These guys do it for the love of old Fords and the love of preserving history. We can add Kube to this list when the '40 book is published. I've had the privilege of working with these guys and I know what it takes to gather the information and put it into book form. We are so lucky to have volunteers like these guys to pass along the information we all seek for our old Fords.

My thanks goes to these guys as well, I'd be lost without their great reference books, plus all the information they so willing give on these forums, and in person at club meets and shows.

My stance is knowing, mainly, the offerings of The Ford Barn. All of the steady constant contributors are unimaginably valuable.

Don Rogers and Others who keep history afloat, are heroes.

The ace restorers, and problem solving sharers, ( Y'all know who ya are ) put this board on top.

Thank You all.
