I think $17,000 is a respectable amount. IMO

$ 17,000 g’s is a nice total so far, but I think with all of us A owners, it should be a lot higher. It’s quite a large expense to rebuild. Have you guys priced lumber lately?

I agree with Jim Brierley. $17,000 is a respectable total. I put the link up so if anyone wanted to add to the total they would know how to get to the Go Fund Me site.

A handful of Model A'ers won't be able to help him rebuild but what we raise will help get him started and let him know that many of us are in his corner.

Thank you all for your support. I will never be able to recover what I lost, and I can't afford to rebuild. My fiancé, Marilee and I have found a trailer house on 2 1/2 acres 150 miles north of here, where we can start over again.
Cleanup alone is at least $30,000. The city made me rent a fence for 3 months and that is another $10,210. A fence was not needed, but here they micro manage your life and take all they can get from you.
I have moved my 28 Phaeton to storage on a farm, and hope to get it back on the road someday. Thanks again for all your support.
