                  Jim Bullock passed away from Covid
                  by PepeLoco
                  His wife called left me a message. He passed away two days ago.
                  He got Covid last week. And I just talked to him on the 14th. Really sad. We are losing some really good folks to this damn virus.
                  They are not sure what is going to happen with the carb business. We need to give the family some time; and of course our thoughts and prayers.

                  by wrndln
                  I am sad to announce that Dudley Moordigian of Fresno, CA passed away February 6, 2022. He was a long time contributor on Vintage Ford Forum. I knew him for 13 or 14 years. He was an excellent machinist. He was 72 years old. He left this world much to soon. He will be missed. May he rest in peace.
