Dear Mr. Don Mayton, Director GM Futurliner
I was an advance representative for the GM Parade
of Progress, 1954-1955. It was one of my BEST GM assessments in 29-1/2 years!
Enclosed are some GM Parade photos for your
I believe the POP special section in the Akron
Beacon Journal, Sept. 26, 1954, is the only bona fide special section of the Parade
received anyplace on tour. Other Advance Men may not agree!
Thank you for your good news reports. It sounds
like you are making excellent progress on your Futurliner restoration. Vic Garske and I
want to come and see it when restoration is further along.
With best regards, Tom Van Voorhis.
