Hi everyone,

The first car I can remember my dad owning was a totally worn out 1928 Star.

The second car was a totally worn out 1934 Dodge Brothers 4 door sedan.

luckily my dad was speeding at 30 mph because the knee action suspension did not work and the car never stopped bouncing. The steering was so loose that you were continually turning the steering wheel back and forth the find the wheels. When the sun went behind a cloud it would not start in the winter time. Dad stored the car in the barn with the milk cows in winter to keep it warm, but he used to place a copper boiler on the stove and bring the water to a boil before putting it in the radiator. Then hook a team of horses to it ant tow it. If it did not start we would drain it. Those were the good old days, but I learned to drive that old Dodge and 60 years later I am still driving.

My first vehicle was a 1950 Studebaker half ton. I have never owned a new car in my life and my driver is a 1980 Plymouth Volare. It had less than 50,000 km on it when I bought it. It will likely be the last car I will own, before they take away my driver's license.

I have had an interesting and challenging life. Several years ago I decided to reproduce running board mats for vintage vehicles. I designed and built the only existing equipment to be able to reproduce any mat pattern. I reproduced over 500 sets of mats over a seven year period with customers worldwide. I sold the business six year ago but the person I sold the business to went bankrupt and badly damaged the image of the business.

Kris Arneson has purchased my tools and equipment from the receiver and has asked me to help him reestablish customer confidence. I agreed, and as a starting point I have built a website: www.runningboardrubber.com to showcase his business.

You will see a picture of a 1935 Chrysler Air Flow owned by Reynolds (Alberta) Museum that I reproduced mat for on the site.

Good luck,
