Default Goldenrod Garage, Freeport Maine

http://www.goldenrod-garage.com/ Don't know if this has been covered in an earlier post but apparently Neil Martin died around the end of October.
The Goldenrod Garage was a "Must Stop" for any gearhead who passed thru Freeport Maine. I would drop my wife off at the outlet malls there and tell her to take her time as I was going to The Goldenrod Garage to checkout his inventory. Always a good selection of early Fords. Talk about a win/win situation. Always thought he would be there forever...Bill.

I talked to him a few times. Always a big inventory. He was a real “Car Guy”. There’s an article about him in this months Hemings....... Mark

Really liked that two story New England barn with the in side ramp up to the second floor.
Barn was always filled with cars tucked in to every nook and cranny, not to mention all the other out buildings he had. Very neat place to stop and explore.

In didn't know about Neil's passing and I'm sorry to hear that. I remember some years ago being in his office trailer when his dog went into an epileptic seizure. He took great pains to make sure the dog was ok. I think you can tell a man's character by how well he treats his dog. He will be missed.
