170220.org 10 year anniversary
« on: February 13, 2015, 10:13:05 AM »
The group's 10 year anniversary is coming up. I went back to verify the 1st day Jim Axman started registration of members and it was on April 1, 2005. Although Jim sold his Mercedes some years back and some of our newer members might not be familiar with his name, he was the driving force behind the formation of the 170220.org website. Stephen

Jim Axman did a lot of work for the site.

He bought a 1936 Packard model 120 several years ago.

That is true Stephen.  In fact, I saw Jim just last week.  My work took near him and timing was such that we were able to visit for a while.  He'd doing just fine.
