Ron, When do you plan on rolling thru. Would love to have you stop by the farm (it is directly on the way to ECR), we could take some pics and hoist a few.

It's been there awhile. I would think that would have happened.

Please check.

Please check.
As a quick update:
Nothing from the family yet. We have been in contact with the contacts and no direction for the truck has been given yet. We are still awaiting input from the family.

Quick update for those who are interested:
We have at long last been able to connect with Brad's wife and now have a direction for the 90.
The plan we put forth was not to over-restore the 90 and make it an ECR truck, but to sort it fully and complete the vision that Brad had for the 90. We feel that is the best plan for the 90 as it will remain in the family, and the family agrees.
We have Rovers North fully on board for support and we will be working the project into the mix shortly.
Images will be on the ECR site and Jeff Aronson of the Rovers North magazine will be doing a story on it as well for the magazine.


Also: If you knew Brad, or his truck and you know of something that he was wanting to do to it, please let me know. We really want to build up the truck the way he would have wanted, and as I did not know him I am looking for input.
I'm not on this forum, so please email me.

Thanks,
Mike, ECR

That's a fabulous approach to take which will preserve the truck and the memories of him with it.

And those memories for the family are priceless.

I hope to have more info soon about services for him if you are in the area. He was a great guy and will surely be missed.

Brian
Im sorry. Very sad, RIP Brad.
