A sad day for the Collector-Car Community

The collector car community lost a well known name. Billy Thompson of White Post Restorations recently passed away. For some of us “young-timers” we may not know the name as well, but he had a huge positive impact on the classic car community through his products and work. His name here at Eastwood rings a bell to many, as he is known as the first “Eastwood B2B Customer” Curt ever had when starting the business. His receipt from 1978 is even framed and hanging on Curt’s office wall! With that receipt posted we are constantly reminded that he was one of the first to take a “chance” on the young Eastwood company and begin placing large orders for his shop. If it wasn’t for people like him, we wouldn’t be where we are today!

So many condolences from Curt Strohacker and The Eastwood Company go out to Billy’s family, friends, and anyone that he has touched over his many great years.
