Default Just a simple "thanks"

Guys, there are a number of you that are always there to help others and for that I thank you.
I continue to learn new things as a result of your generosity.
Even though I am a "40" guy, there are fellow's (Dave Rehor comes to mind immediately) that have such a vast depth of knowledge, well, I tend to follow their posts religiously.

That's it... just "thanks".

When I became aware of some of the top people in the hobby were present on this board, I was absolutely blown away. It took me a while figure out who was who, because of the unassuming way they interact on the board. They're on here every day, dispensing hard-earned knowledge like it's casual every day chatter. It is us, the everyday hobbyists who should be saying thanks to these icons of the hobby.

I hate to do it, because I am afraid I'll miss someone, but I'd add Don Rogers, Karl Wescott, and Mac Van Pelt to the list. Kudos to all of you!

Like you, I was apprehensive to name names as well as my memory is poopy. I have to concur though... Don and Karl are wonderful.

Knowledge shared is knowledge preserved.
Thank goodness we have so many folks who open their Fordbarn door and let others in.

Not only would I like to give thanks to the members here for their willingness to give advice and insights, but many here have also given parts to others when the need arises.

This is truly a great site indeed.

Thanks, all!

The FordBarn has quite a few members that can answer questions and
give good sound advice about certain mechanical issues dealing with
engine, drive train, electrical, fuel delivery problems, body & paint, etc, etc, etc.

If I were going to take an across country trip, in my old Ford, and could ask
any member here to ride along, to help with most any problem that could arise,
it would be DD= V/8 Coopman... He is very smart, and has vast knowledge
about so many different issues these old Fords have.

The guy don't just answer members questions, he also takes the time to
provide illustrations and spends the time it takes to make sure the member
understands how to fix the problem at hand. He's a Super Member here.
Did I mention, he's Smart.
