    Sad news indeed. Will send up prayer for him. It won't seem like it's a Nats North Swap not seeing him out prowling the swap first thing in the morning.

  2. As you already know God works in mysterious ways, you may very well see Dick prowling the swap meets again . HRP

    Oh I'm aware of that and hope it proves to be the case here. I was speaking of this year's Nats North only
     
  4. Hi, I called his shop today and someone there said that Dick had an operation last Wed. He is recovering from that at the moment. Yes prayers are in order for him. I have spoken to him many times in the past and yes he is a walking talking guru on HOT RODS!! I will be sending him a card to cheer him up and will include a get well from all the folks at HAMB site to let him know how much we care for him. I live close by him. Thanks Don.



    Dick had an operation on Wed. of last week. He is recovering

    Anyone know the room in Albany Med that Dick is in? Hate to call Bill as I am sure he is up to his neck in business stuff right now. Lots in common and a good friend. Thanks
     
  6. Most hospitals won't give out information on patients due to security measures. HRP

    So sad to hear. Never met him but bought parts from him and he always had the answers to any type of early Ford issue. Wishing him the best-our prayers are with him.

    I called a few people I know.
    No one has any new info?
    I called his shop, hoping Bill would have some info, but, no answer?
    Nobody has heard anything?
    I was told, the only relative he has, is his mom, who is 96.
    I sure hope he is doing OK!

    Just got news of this last night talking to a fellow HAMBER. Thanks for the address Don.
     
  20. I still have him in my prayers. HRP

  21. Called Dick last year looking for a set of 32-34 drums; said he had a set but would need to see how they would clean up. Called me back within 24 hours (apologetically) to tell me they had to go .040" to get them cleaned up...I laughed & said I'll take them.

    As we say down in Texas, Dick Spadaro "is good people"...definitely in the White family thoughts & prayers.

  22. Hi, I was told yesterday that Dick may be discharged by the weekend. If you do send a card the Hospital will forward it to him. Thanks Don.

    That is the best news I've heard all day. Thanks.

    Hopefully, Mr. Spadaro will be back on here soon to ease our minds.
