    Sorry to hear that. My condolences to the family. I first met Don in 1967 and purchased some Deuce parts from him. He was always a helping hand when I needed something. My friend has a Deuce roadster that came from him.

    Sorry to be disrespectful
    I won't miss him
    He screwed over lots of people,including myself
    While my 32 3 window was in his shop getting a dropped axle, he swapped out my mint door handles for beat up ones
    I bought some 32 3 window doors from Mike Mayfield while in Gatlinburg
    Don offered to bring them back to Ohio for me since I was driving my Coupe
    He never gave them to me.....
    I know another guy that got screwed out of his whole 32 3 window
    I think if you ask around, you'll see what I mean
    Sorry

    I understand your frustration, however, I feel it to be a little uncouth to speak ill will of a dead man. Rip, sir.

    Also, on sad note. Pete Jerardi, long time friend of Don Broyles passed away sunday A.M. Services are friday @ 4 P.M. Pete was a long time car guy. All the cars he had were old school but of show quality. All that knew Pete will surely be missed.
     
  10. I met Pete Jerardi at the 1977 Street Rod Nats in St Paul, when I had My chopped 40 Merc and Pete had his chopped, Carson topped 47 Ford convertible
    A year or so later I was in Dayton for work and Pete took me around to meet Don Broyles, Jim Walker and a great body man, whom I can't remember his name. (Moonglow clone)
    They all treated me as a long lost friend and were great guys, so this was very hard to hear.
    May both Don and Pete rest in peace.

    Mick
