My father was a good friend of John's and we lived just a short few blocks form him. I bought a Cushman Eagle motor scooter and Dad had John grind a cam for it back in the late 50's, maybe 1958. My Father created a vibration balancing business where he balanced reciprocation parts for engines all over the country including NASCAR and race boat engines. His name was Jim Donovan and he passed away in 1963. Many of the names you mentioned seem familiar to me but I don't have a clear memory. We lived in the Murray Hill section of Jacksonville, FL. I used to sneak out to the Jacksonville Speed Way in Lenix and Plymouth ave. in Jacksonville too to run my 1950 Ford in the drag races. Running into someone who knew John Schooler brought back many memories to me. JTD.
