Happy Birthday Ron! My Mom just hit 84 on April 2nd . . . though she seems to be a "Model 40" at heart --- as she is still very young spirited, healthy (still works out) and is a very positive inspiration in my life and others. I hope to see you and my Mom around for a good many more years. Thanks for all your contributions to this site and for the Flathead Ford spirit you bring to us all!

Have as good a one as you can Ron. I tend to ignore B-days since it seems they come along too often as time goes by. My old boss man will be 84 in October but he is still puttering around the helicopters 4-days a week and even 5-days on occasion.

Happy Birthday Ron! I really enjoy the knowledge you share with us. I believe that whatever Ol' Ron says, you can take it to the bank!

May you have many more birthdays Ron. I am older than you by quite a few years (WWII veteran) and my advice is keep active physically, and also by using your original equipment brain power. Do not "park".

Happy birthday Ol'Ron. I enjoyed reading your book, but haven't tried to measure the clearance of my full floating rod bearings yet.

My favorite Ol'Ron quote is regarding breaking in an engine, "Drive it like you stole it."

Sorry I missed this yesterday Ron, Happy Birthday. 1933 was a good year for two reasons, to me the '33 Roadster is the best looking early Ford but more importantly it brought Ford Barn a knowledgeable and entertaining member. Thanks for all you do here.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RON
One of the highlights in fooling with these old Fords was to visit in your shop a few years ago with the shock man Bill Wzorek when he gave you an award (that he crafted) from the Cigar City Flathead boys.
Keep turning those wrenches for many more years.

Sorry I missed your birthday post last Saturday. Happy belated birthday. I'll be in touch soon, time for another lunch visit. I have something for Rob and I need to get a better idea of just which model Holly you're looking for, ventura size, etc.. I found a guy who has a number of carbs he says he's going to sort out before going to Stowe later this year. I'll keep in touch with him.
