Rest in Peace Mr. Finn!
This pics was taken in my back yard,we were a little busy,and there was another coach or two that did not make the pics.
We were updating Johns Generator to a powertech.
He was supervising.
Great pic Bill.

This is Lisa, (Mrs. NH Bill). I loved Iamflagman. He was a walking miracle and an overcomer for sure. Kali (Cali?) and Buddies #1 & #2 were lucky. Glad to know he received the Grace of a peaceful end.

I first met John online,Ernies forum was running back then.
John was looking at a coach on ebay,and i had already made up my mind to buy it.
John wanted it,and he thought i may outbid him.
He called and asked me to stand down,that he really wanted the coach.
No problem,i stood down and John bought the coach.
A short time later we met in person at an action in SC where i was buying equipment,he stopped by to pickup a dinette table i had brought with me,for him.
WE hit it off and the rest is history.


He tried to keep me under control for many years,i think hes passed that duty along to Bill Pape.


John would lead a caravan sometimes,from the beach rally to the Maxton race rally.
He would lead the group and i would bring up the rear,he had a great CB and i had a good one.
John ran a heavy escort service for years (trucks,not fat chicks!)
So he knew the talk,he would warn us about mail boxes,people walking,and all that stuff.
Fun times,some people did not have a CB and missed the chatter,a good thing sometimes!


If you have a good John story,post it up.
He would laugh with you!

I must have read through every page of John Finn's website 5 times before I bought my FC. I'm sad I never had a chance to meet him.
