First, a little history for those of you who may have never heard of this style coach before.

According to CoachBuilt, The Guy Barnette Co. was one of Memphis’ “small 4 (Weller Bros., Barnette/Barnett, Comet/Pinner, and Memphis/Economy Coach)” professional car producers that flourished there in the 1940s-1960s. Located at 239 South Dudley St. at the intersection of Dudley & Eastmoreland Streets they specialized in Pontiac and Chevrolet professional car conversions from 1947 through 1955. “Custom-made quality at assembly line cost” was one of their many slogans. (Quoted directly from their website)

My name is Dennis. First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
