  • Tom Karkiewicz

    T probably spelt Tom's last name wrong but it'll do . I just heard today that Tom is in the hospital and just had open heart surgery , his wife said that it'll be awhile before Tom can venture out in the cold or back in his barns.
    All the best to Tom and a speedy recovery.

    I second his speedy recovery! What a cool guy Tom is! I spent maybe 30 minutes yakkin' with him in Omaha. Can't feature the Stude world being wihtout him.

    Be well, Tom!

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        I hope he gets better soon!

        Talking 30 minutes with Tom is easy, just ask him any question.

            My prayers are with him. Many times (like Omaha) I have limped there and his parts have gotten me back on my return trip in tip top shape.

                    Met him and bought some stuff off him at Reedsville in Oct. He spent most of an hour with a total newbie- he saw me looking at race car photos in his stuff and in 5 minutes was showing me more- even was familiar with the type of race cars I drove! Great guy [^] Still can't believe I remembered how to spell his last name correctly, only to get his first name wrong...[:I][)]

                    Here's hoping he heals up 100% and I'll get to show him the race car pics he wanted to see at SB! On the upside, the things they can do with heart surgery now are truly amazing!

                    Get well soon, and get some more Lark stuff on the bus for me at SB![8D]
