I don’t know what the rules are for this site, but somehow we should be able to contribute to Tom to help. We owe him a lot.

That's horrible news, you can see Tom's '28 Phaeton in the driveway in the video, what a loss, but thank God, no one was hurt. He restored two powerhouse generators for me about 10 years back, we should do something to help.

That’s just horrible news…..Tom has been such a helpful friend here for a long time, but sadly absent the past couple of years. Thank goodness no one was hurt, but with no insurance it’s going to be tough to recover.

Start a go fund me page. $ times the thousands on the site would go a long way to help.

I was just thinking of a go fund me page as well. I have never done one.

So, if anyone is familiar with setting it up, please do, so that we can help out Tom.

I find it hard to believe that he did not have insurance though.

Tom was such an articulate man, I am sure he would have insurance. Has anyone talked to him ? Wayne

He apparently emailed Mitch at VFF to confirm the fire and that the house and cars were not insured. Iím gonna wait on a GoFundMe until thereís one that Tom officially blesses.

I can honestly say I know what he is going through.It happened to me just over a year ago,on March 7.Lost everything in the fire,including one A,all my motorcycles,and my cellar full of A parts.Losing the dogs made all that crap seem unimportant though.

I personally would like to hear from Brent before I /we do anything. Brent is a very wise and intelligent man that I am sure knew Tom well.
