In A Litle Town That Time Forgot, Tommys Used Cars

resides in a world all its own, tucked away in Guthrie, KY. More like a museum than a used car lot, while both exist side by side, many visitors are drawn by the old and unusual metal objects packed closely in the showroom. These cars, classic and antique as they are, have list prices for sale, except for two old Ford Model A's. This gallery is dedicated to my father Luke Cardillo, who had an automobile upholstry business, called "trim shop", as his primary business in Camarillo California, circa 1962 to 1998, until he could no longer work it. Luke began as a young apprentice in the buggy trade in the 1920's, before the profusion of horsless carriages. Don Teasley's shop in Clarksville, TN, is reminiscent of dad's. The two men met in 1990, briefly, on some repair of a Cadillac dad had borrowed for a wedding, from his friend Ted Johnson, formerly of Clarksville. Enjoy!
