I'm very sorry to hear about dicks health,I was saddened when I heard about it months ago,he's a great guy to talk with,always helpful. But what it really means is that there is another vendor gone from our traditional way of building cars. The parts,the source,the knowledge,if this keeps occurring,with no one taking over the reigns,we will be left with pimple faced kids trying to sell us the wrong parts,or wanting to look up parts for a car that's been obsolete for fifty years! Sad days indeed!

Dick proved a tremendous resource for several projects that entered my garage. He has a lot of friends in this community.

I used to drive by the shop on the way to Thatcher Park, it's so sad that Dick is very ill, what we need now is a miracle.

Sad, sad situation. Dick and Bill are both good guys that were always helpful and more than patient with many, many newcomers. Loved seeing them at York.
Prayers for Dick, family, and friends. Best of luck to Bill in the future and many thanks for his past help as well.
Sad Al

Hate to hear, a lot of knowledge will be gone.

These two men were so helpful and great to do business with too. I'm glad I was able to just stop in at anytime. They will be missed in the hobby and the neighborhood. May Dick not suffer and the best to Bill in his new home !

A friend of mine called there yesterday about getting some parts for a quick change he bought from Dick a couple years ago. He spoke with a relative of Dick (nephew I believe) who is taking care of closing the business down and selling off all the stock. He told my friend that Dick is now in a nursing home.

This was posted a couple of days ago on the HAMB:

Just to let people know, Dick has been placed in a nursing facility. I explained that Dick has touched many people and the hobby and asked what we could do and a family member said to send cards of encouragement to him. Please send cards to his business shop at Dick Spadaro Early Ford Reproductions 6599 NY Route 158 Altamont NY 12009. Mail is picked up there for him and he will get them.
