    My Grandpa passed away on Saturday morning, he hasn't been well for a few years, he had Luey Body Dementia, so at least he's not suffering anymore. He is one of the big reasons my dad is into old cars, and I know if my dad wasnt I probably wouldn't be either. I still remember the first time he let me drive his '37 Chevy by myself, it was a big deal to me at the time.

    Just be thankful for the great times you had with your Grandpa. My grandpaw was a wonderful guy, he was in the Barnum & Bailey Circus in 1900. He told the greatest stories to us grandkids seated around the parlor stove at his farm in Vermont. I wouldn't take anything for the times I spent with him. I pray that the Lord will give you peace and joy brother.

    Sorry to hear that, he sounded like a great guy. I never got to met my grandfathers, they passed before I was born.

    Sorry for the loss...

    I'll assert that your grandfather left a legacy far greater than the "hot rod bug" and that is powerful thing to behold. Automobiles are just the medium to express all sorts of ideas and lessons... remember that as you carry on his legacy and build your own. That probably helped him through any type of suffering through his sickness.

    Remember all he taught bro. The good and the bad haha he'll always be there with you even when you least expect him he'll pop up in your mind. Grandpaws never led me wrong in the hot rod world, I know he will be missed but never forgotten..:rolleyes:
