Tony and Barry, so sorry to hear this. I met your father a few times including the time Barry and Jimmy were visiting me in my home in Lexington. I always enjoyed talking to your dad and appreciate all he did for the Corvair community as well as his immense knowledge of Corvairs. May he rest in peace. Amen
