We Lose One of Our Own

We sadly lost Tom Caulfield of Janesville, WI earlier this week. Tom was a founding father of the Ferrari Club of America and the New Glarus Hill climb.

Tom had a penchant for Italian exotics and enjoyed restoring them almost as much as he did driving them. If it had a Colombo 12 in it, Tom was the master.

We met Tom and his son Kevin later in his career as the two were driving and sharing their Pebble winning 1951 212 Berlinetta Touring with the rest of us. Many a historic race weekend at Elkart was spent sitting and chatting with Tom at Burdies Nest on Lake St. as the throngs of unknowing spectators streamed past. Tom and Kevin had a tight bond that we here at Fuelfed can relate to first hand.

Our warmest condolences go out to Kevin and the rest of the Caulfield family.
