    Bob,
    Thanks for finding and providing Tom's obituary. It should be an absolute must to read of his life's accomplishments. My wife and I have known Tom and Nancy for a long time and still didn't realize what a fine life he had led.

      If this is the Tom Pfahler who had a black '63 black Avanti with a AACA gold plaque on the cars front, then yes I remember him from the national meet in South Bend in 1997. A terrific guy and so damn down the earth. RIP Tom.

        The same.
        I believe he sold the Avanti to "Tiger" Tom Ehrhart.

                It is indeed sobering to face the reality that we all are moving toward our final reward.

                  Jim, thanks for the great eulogy that you gave at Tom's service. Not only was it a sober, awe inspiring but funny as well. The ending was perfect. Thank you again. Ed and Laura, thanks for coming and sorry Diana and I did not get to see you. We saw many Studebaker friends from the past and other frinds as well. I know my sister Nancy appreciated the fact that you all were there. It was an amazing service and time. Tom will be missed by many.

                    Thanks Don, it was one of the most difficult things I have ever done in my life. But I'd do just about anything for the true Friend that Tom was.
