This week I had a Great Surprise Visit from a Gentleman who taught me Science in the 9th grade. We moved to Texas City in 1957 at mid-tern of the 9th grade. Bill Harper was one of my Fathers first customer at the new Dealership! He drove a 1955 Red T-Bird and was single and had every kid in Texas City envying him and following him around town. Bill, his wife and Son spent about two hours with me at my Building talking about everything from his past students from all over the world that he taught during his career! On January 31, 2024 Bill will be 99 Years Young and I look forward to Celebrating his 100th Birthday! What a wonderful experience for both of us at m age 81 and his age 99! I Have Truly Been Blessed! Happy New Year To All My Ford GT Friends! We never get too old to enjoy the Ford GT’s. PS He started it but wouldn’t drive it!
