I was very saddened to read the passing of my friend Pat McFarlane. He was a true gentleman. He drove his trusty 1932 Ford Fordor Sedan everywhere, to National Meets all over the country. Early Ford V8 enthusiasts are going to miss Pat and his 1932 Fords. Our prayers go to his family during this difficult time.

Here is a picture of Pat's 1932 Ford Fordor Sedan a long way from home, during the drive to Virginia City, Nevada back in 2013. The photo was taken at the lunch stop at Genoa.

Pat was a dear friend. He was always ready to help you. His '32 Model B roadster is currently listed on ebay. Always looked forward to visiting with him at the National Meets and Hershey each year. Will miss him. R.I.P Patrick!

Blessings to Pat's family, I did not know him BUT seeing his picture with his 4 Door sedan I remember seeing his car at several National Meets admiring his tenacity and spirit of participation with his sedan. Sorry to hear of his passing!!!!

I got to know Pat from EFV8 Club national meets. He was a nice guy. He was a familiar face at every V8 meet I attended.

Truly a remarkable man, as a board member of the Early Ford V8 Museum he would pay a one year membership for interested parties attending Early Ford V8 National Meets. I was
one that became a member through Pat and remain a member to this day. I will always remember his kindness and devotion to everything early Ford. This hobby has lost a remarkable man and we have lost a special friend. Rest In Peace Pat.

I always looked forward to seeing Pat at the various EFV8 Club meets and Hershey. I learned a lot from him, not only about 32 Fords but also about perseverance and how a positive outlook is essential to well-being. He made the hobby a pleasure.

I too was honored to have known Pat. There was always that sly smile and good natured attitude.
Whether it was him offering to volunteer or just stopping by, I will always be appreciative of his offers during the week at Hershey. He was one of the first to promote the Early Ford V-8 Club at the AACA Fall National Meet. When the Club started an official booth, Pat was one of the first to volunteer to work the table. And if you walked the Hershey fields, you could never "sneek" by his space on the field. He would always try and sell you re-conditioned spark plugs whether you needed them or not.
Another good one has left us. Thanks for being with us Pat, your smile and friendship will be missed.
