Direct quote from the article. "When the U.S. economy slumped over the last couple of years, Woods's dealership struggled. He sought a loan from the city and other support to stay open, but had to close in April"

Who should we blame this on? Oh, never mind - you know. The man who hates small businessmen.

The SWC gasser was a favorite of mine back in the 60's, although I never got to see them in person. Those gasser wars were something then, nothing like them now.
Praying that Lenny is suffering no more where he is now, and that his family's faith will get them through the trying times ahead.

That is depressing. Poor guy. He put all his faith in a buisness & died for it... sad. How many times someone just needed one solid friend to help in those final moments... before pulling the trigger... to try to help them have a little faith in God... to realize a new season in life or a closed door could make the Golden years of their life better, a new adventure, a chance for God to make the enemy their foot-stool. It kills me... they don't have to pull the trigger... they don't have to face so much alone... he does not get to have a come-back story now... no last fight... no "part 2". I hate seeing legends go down this way... he deserved better.
