Things You Don’t See Everyday

I don’t know much about the photo, except a friend of my father named D.L. Brown saw it in the USS Arizona Museum sometime in the Late 70’s.  He immediately  recognized my dad, Richard Stopp, due to his hunched over shoulders.  My father always had that stance.  D.L.  mailed him a copy.  Later on, Dad received a US Navy copy, stamped on the back with the date, etc.  That one is unfortunately gone. No idea where it went.   I was with my dad when he got the package with…

One of the nice happenings at Cars and Coffee is that there are many families who drop by and cruise the cars in awe as they did at “Cruisin the Pines”. The kids love to see and…

In doing so, I have been asked to share a story on the restoration of the two cars I own. Hi, I am…

1929 Studebaker Dictator

The power of social media: David B. was checking out an app on his phone called NextDoor. It’s an app that people can post information to for just their local area. David came upon a posting that was inquiring about local car clubs. He passed the info onto his wife, Diane, and the rest, as they say, is history. Welcome to the Club Carroll and Paul!  (Oh, an interesting side note is that other people posted on the inquiry offering Carroll suggestions. All the suggestions were ‘Roamin Angels’.)
