It was nice to see them and read about Bud in MCM again. I think it's really cool that though most
people forget the ones no longer with us, MCM honored Bud Lefevre and brought thoughts of our
friend again into our minds.
I had the pleasure of knowing Bud personally and have been to his dinner table and his workbench.
Bud left an impression on so many of us, probably even more of you that didn't know him..you saw
his killer hot rods and drag car models at Toledo NNL for many years. I only got the privelage to see
them in person a couple of times before he passed. I live in Omaha, Nebraska , so getting to Ohio
costs a bunch and is 12 hours one way.
Well I am not trying to be sappy, nor do I claim any fame to having known him....I just want to give
props for keeping Bud's memory alive!
Bud gave me one of his projects, a 1/16 scale '55 Chevy drag car that he was scratchbuilding the
chassis and wheels for. One of these days I am going to finish it for him. He sold a replica '56 Nomad
of Randall Klein's drag wagon and had it dropped at my house on the way to him to ensure any loose
parts could be put back on and then I could deliver to Randall myself. Well..the car had a bunch of
parts come off and some broke HAH! I tell ya what....I felt very "cool" to be able to take HIS work to
my bench and repair it. I don't take credit for the results, but it's something I won't forget...
Just taking a seat outside NNL
Here is the Nomad if anyone would like to see it.
I have not posted in a long time, but I felt this must be said and applauded...thanks MCM!
Feel free to share memories and photos...I would love to see them.

Bud was in my club here in the Detroit area.
I miss him.
I was given this from his widow, Ginger, to remember him by.
