It was probably the time he sold me seat belts for my A, after my wreck. Or maybe not.....

Phil,

You surley will be missed...thanks for all your knowledge about Model A's you have given out over the years to many, many Model A'ers.

Bert's is and always will be the heart and soul of original Model A parts.

Enjoy your retirement.

Pluck

Good luck in your retirement and I hope you continue to bring fine orignal Model A's to the national meets, like the nice original Coupe you brought to the Madison national meet years ago.

Talking Re: Berts Model A

Why the hell are you quitting such a gravy job for? All you did was come in early, stay late, answer the phone, dis-assemble parts, store them outside in the cold and snow, answer the phone(s), gather box and ship parts in one day, hunt down new inventory, keep the shop clean, learn most everything about most every car, be friendly to all visitors, learn where every part was in that tiny little store, go without lunch, sort and grade parts, maintain inventory, spend all that time in a truck with Steve and remembering a parts order from three years ago.

I'd have to re-think that if I were you.

PS: I would not have done as well with my 'projects' if it were not for you guys, THANKS!!!

Stay thirsty my friend!
