I am new to this forum and am looking for any Downing & Ryan photos of John’s “RESPECT” Fairlane. I have seen photos of Jim’s Fairlane that now belongs to Don Antilla but I’m only interested in the original white and brown Fairlane. This was the first of John’s Fords and holds a place near and dear to my heart. On another note, Jim Ryan passed away in mid January as the result of heart failure. He will be sadly missed.
Sorry to hear that …Stand By for some photo.
Searched the Forum…Had This Already…
Found this …See photo caption ?…Thats the way It came in and needs explaination.
Jim bought that car from Don Antilla as you probably know and was in the process of restoring it when he passed away. I spoke to Jim on a weekly basis and still can’t believe he is gone.
