Remember our awesome 4th July red, white and blue Stromberg 97 carbs? Sold to Eric Arnette from Texas via our Facebook auction, we raised $900 for the Fisher House Foundation and paid the donation today. Here’s the letter of thanks from David A Coker, President of the Foundation.
Fisher House Foundation has built a network of comfort homes at major military and VA medical centers, enabling family members to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for a combat injury, illness or disease. They’ve helped over 19,000 military families, saving them over $200,000,000 since 1990. No wonder they have an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy. Maybe make a donation yourself? www.fisherhouse.org
Just a correction, I have since found out that Dad’s car was the 3rd car Willis Baldwin built in 1951 and the Payne Special was the 1st car he built in approx 47,with a 2nd car built in 49 so hope this clears this up a bit but true I do have a quad stromberg Ardun with Austin intake,thanks, Stu Hanssen
The 1st car is the Payne Special that resides in England for many years now. Thanks Stu Hanssen
