Default Another sad loss

I just learned that my pen pal, David Morris (tiger.1000 herein) in the U.K. passed away on Saturday. He will be remembered as a frequent contributor here regarding the many components that he made from scratch for his gorgeous '32 Model B cabriolet and his great sense of humor.



May he rest in peace.

That is such a sad passing. I am not a '32 specific guy but the very thought of a man producing parts for such a car 'from scratch' instead of ordering them from a catalogue lets me know he is from the old realm of 'fixing up cars'. May he rest in blissful peace, skinned knuckles and all.
