Her Father was the truck shop foreman at a Ford dealership in Austin Tex and when Ford did away with the heavy duty trucks ALL the shop manuals went home in the back of his pickup!!! And Michelle had them!!!!  There are several pictures of her on the JOT link above.

Brocky - please do you recall if Michelle was in the military in her younger years? Possibly I had several communications with her around 2015 when I was interested in some non Mack trucks in the US that were for sale and if it was Michelle, she knew the vendors and she was very helpful.

she very well could have been Harry. 

i seem to remember Michelle and the owner of The Ford Falcon News talking military back in the early days of TFFN.

Thank you, that is Michelle. She gave her best promptly without any hesitation, wonderful human being. Her LTL was a great looking truck and well kept by Michelle, tandem drive, Cummins, it had a sleeper (60 inches) and I think it may have been red colour, not sure?

Condolences to her family and friends.

Dan, I have not seen a link to it either??? Dan Aldrich has posted some Facebook messages from her Step Daughter on the JOT site..

Of course there is NO Mention of her passing on the ATHS Website!!!

does anyone know if Michelle's website is still active? 

i lost track of her a few years ago when TFFN server crashed and we could not get the forum back up and running.
