Rusty Rods father has joined the ranks of those who are no longer walking amongst us and is answering to his maker.
He lived a pretty much carefree life, often at the expense of his family.
The past few years had not been kind to him, he lost most of his mobility and his ability to speak clearly. Very sad.

He was mostly a GM man, but occasionally strayed to other manufacturers. He loved to buy and sell cars, trucks, wagons or whatever.

RIP "Flashback", I'll do the rodding from now until whenever.
