To those that knew him:

On Monday, October 6, 1997 at approximately 1:10PM, the Dudecraft merged with the infinite, being dragged away by Pete Warren's auto wrecking service of Paxton, Massachusetts. A brief ceremony was held in which a set of keys and the title of ownership were exchanged for a sum not exceeding and not falling short of 25 dollars. The final moments of viewing are perhaps best described by Pete's statement, "Wow, that is riding low, isn't it?"

Let it be known that the Land Yacht performed admirably for the 6 years and 56,000 miles that it was under my care, and that, in the end, all evils and goods have been appropriately balanced, because after all, 25 bucks is 25 bucks.

It will be missed, but I have abated my grief with knowledge of the workings of modern metal recycling, and with the hope we may all come into contact with the spirit of the Venerable Two-Tone Brown/Tan Cruiser of Love in some other quality American metal object.

A moment silence is acknowleged, but not necessary, as I have 4 years prior to this day, disconnected the clock in the Frigate on Wheels, freezing time forever at 12:42PM within the confines of Caprice-Classic-Space. It knows not the rusty iron hand of time.

Thank you all,
