There were never ANY bad times shared with John. Always quick to help , he'd greet you with a smile and a hand shake. In 35 years of knowing him and dealing with Challengers and Cuda's he would ALWAYS go above and beyond to help you. I bought a 71 Cuda from him a few years back and we had a lot of fun together getting it fixed up.

Ron, I’ve met John, my father in law lives up the road from him. John was a great guy. He invited me to see his collection but living out of state, I never made it.
He would take care of my in-laws garden while they were away visiting us.
He will be missed by many.

That’s terrible. I talked to John and Andrew several times when they were at the spring swap meet in South Park.
They were one of the only vendors with Mopar stuff.
RIP

I bought some parts from John last year and he was a fair guy to deal with and was happy to show me his cars.

I was always impressed on how clean and shiny his cars were. I asked what he used and he mentioned "Wizards" and I happen to work next door to a paint supply shop who sells it (and where John bought his) We were at the grave side and Andy says "Dad if I had some Wizards I'd give your coffin a buff and shine" I went to my Barracuda and grabbed the Wizards. In that very somber moment Andy's eyes lit up and he proceeded to buff and shine John's coffin. It kind of lightened the mood and we all knew John was laughing at us. I was proud to know John over 35 years and be a small part of his life. Never thought I'd use my Barracuda in a funeral procession.
Here are John's "High school car" and Andy's 71 V code Cuda
