Mike Tatum

We lost a good friend yesterday, Mike Tatum. Hot rodder and horse trader, all around nice guy.

Mike was one of those guys with an eye for what was cool in hot rods. He collected 32 and 36 Ford parts, Halibrand wheels and quick changes and tools. Not much of a sheet metal fabricator himself but he did like to tinker. I ended up building some fixtures, pressing dies and a few parts to resurrect his 32 3W he was working on. We had been building #3 Helve hammer to trade for his power hammer and a few other friendly deals going on. If you were to purchase one of our 32 Ford K-member legs, they are test fit on a genuine Ford K-member from Mike.

We will miss him.
