Default A thank you from Pat Mcfarlanes wife

Guys,
As most know Pat was a moving force in the V8 Club of America,
he certainly knew of The Ford Barn so when Margaret was made aware of the eulogies and priceless photos presented on behalf of Pat she was
touched to say the least....here is her most sincere thanks........

Dear Ford Barn Members,
Thank you for confirming the life of Pat McFarlane in your beautiful
comments stories and photos. He was a gentleman, problem solver. He helped
those that needed help, it was clear to him.
May I add a story ?...For the Finger Lakes Meet we had two couples from Sweden staying with us. He of course, let the visitors drive his '32's, Pat drove modern. On the road there was a problem with one of the

'32's. He pulled up and got out his tools in the rain. The two Swedish women held umbrellas while Pat made the repairs. We all stood in awe. The '32 started right up to our applause and off we went.....another win for the team.
With love,
Margaret Corbin
Pat's friend, partner and wife

Charlie,


Thanks for sharing the note from Margaret. Her story of the visitors from Sweden is typical of the Pat I knew and admired.

Charlie thanks for posting the comments from Pat's wife. It was typical Pat. I am so thankful to have been able to visit with Pat at the last V-8 Meet in Auburn.
