Slice of Life

Recently at the 151st Annual Cummington Fair Antique Car Parade and Car Show, Worthington Resident, Robert Spiess won Best Restored Trophy for his model A, 1930 Ford. Bob bought his ford in Easthampton, MA, 23 years ago. While many believe that classic car restoration is in danger of becoming a lost art because the machines are hard to find and the skills even harder to find, Bob has done most of the maintenance and mechanical work on his pristine classic Ford.

For the past 23 years, Robert has only missed four years of competition at the Cummington Fair and he has won many ribbons along the way. Bob grew up on a farm and said he learned things naturally on his own out of necessity. You can occasionally see Bob and his wife Judy riding through the hilltowns with his pride and joy 1930 Ford.
