Big As Fundraiser for the Toy Drive

In spite of the power outages, chilly weather, and without the Roamin Angels Cruise In, Big As was able to generously give the club a $1500.00 donation!  We also made $121.00 on the raffle. All and all it was OK considering the circumstances. We are so appreciative to Big As for their continuing support of our club and for all their generosity. They are Great.
Thanks Jim and Judy! – Pam D.

Bob ‘S.O.B.’ Madsen
Dec. 21, 1936 – Sept. 26, 2019

Dear Friends,
Thank you so much for the wonderful tribute you gave S.O.B at his Celebration of Life. Bob would have been so pleased to see so many of his friends there. Bob was cantankerous, corny, stubborn, caring, funny (or he thought he was), and generous to a fault. When we had our business, if I hadn’t gone down to run the front end, he would have given it all away. Many of our employees told us that Bob had a very strong influence on their lives. Our children grew up in our shop and worked in it.

I hope you liked the program my son, Tag, put together for the memorial. It included some of the music that meant a lot to our family.
S.O.B. was always ready to work on everyone else’s car but not his own. I think he was afraid to finish it because he feared it would not measure up to other cars. My son, Tag, is going to finish the A so I hope to see it on the road some time in the near future.

Thank you again for being there for the Madsen family. It made it a little easier loosing Bob.
Sincerely, Nola
