Thinking of Leonard Shepherd today, on what would have been his 72nd birthday. We miss you, buddy! :(


I couldn't post his picture in "Stove Huggers" so, Clark can move this post if warranted.

Probably couldn't think of Leonard without his Studebaker connection. So, I can't think of a more proper place for this thread! Great photo! His very expression shouts GREAT GUY!
Thanks for posting.

Sadly, I can think of more. A growing list, that has made the SDC, a community worth being a member.

I met Leonard at York and Reedsville meets. He was very helpful in finding me parts for my '64 conv. I enjoyed talking with him about our cars.

I think about him every time I work on my 52. Yesterday I was reading old posts about overdrive transmissions and realized I was reading one of his. Since he was working on the same car, I read those closely for hints about what he was doing. I never actually met Leonard face to face, but I wanted to.

He was a fun guy.
Had quite the memorabilia collection.
Hung around with Tom C in Richmond.
Used to see him there every once and a while...

:( I, too, miss Leonard. Such a gentle gentleman. (Thanks again for "first dibs" on the 1964 Daytona convertible, Leonard. I'm keeping it as you thought it would be kept.:)) :cool: BP

Leonard was probably the first one that stood out in my mind when I first came into the Forum. He was so open & honest I felt I missed something being on the west coast. The picture of his 52 & the primered front fender made me wish all the more I wanted to meet him & paint that fender for him. But that didn't happen & we all were saddened when he was hit with his illness. It was so sudden. I still miss him as I'm sure many who read his wit do too.

Here's a picture that I took back in October 2005
