    So sorry to hear. I have never met your dad but had several phone conversations while resurrecting the Mazmanian Austin. He was very helpful and very excited that it was getting finished. Just be there for him and be positive as much as you can. Peace

    For those on here, that aren't familiar with Tom, I have to say that there is not a better person on this earth. Because of his knowledge of drag cars, (Gassers are his specialty) and his outlook on life, he is one of those rare individuals that you make friends with, on your first meeting. Tom and I have been friends and race partners for 30 plus years, and I have been concerned about his health for a while now. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for his recovery. Here are a few shots of our great friend.

    Very sorry to hear about Tom! I just got my last copy of Gasser Wars magazine, and noticed he had no collector column in there, and Phil put a note that he was ill. I sure pray for him and your family through this!

    J.W,

    I am sorry to hear for your dad's condition. I know that he will be fighting real hard to beat this. Just let him know that the guys on the HAMB are there to support your dad. Tell him to keep on fighting.

    You might also want to start a thread on the HAMB Chapel It is one of the community groups.

    Dave :eek:
