|My name is Zack Methvin. I currently live in Longview, Texas. I spent most of my life in Jackson, Mississippi. My dad, Lonnie
Methvin built a 1923 T-bucket roadster car in the mid 70's. In 1980 or so he sold the car to Joe Speed who owned North
Jackson Honda/Yamaha. Sometime in the early 80’s Joe sold the car to an unknown man who lives on the Ross Barnett
Reservoir in Jackson. I have been looking for this car for a few years now in hopes I can locate it possibly buy the car back. I
have spoken with Joe Speed several times but he has no records of the man he sold the car to. I have tried running the last
known LP (MS Antique #1196) and have had no luck. I do not have the VIN number or any other official documentation. I
spoke to the man who painted the car many years ago and he said he did in fact see the car near the Reservoir a couple
years back. He advised that a large man who appeared overweight was the driver. It is my belief that the car is still located in
the Reservoir area. This is why I am writing you. Is there any way possible you could help me locate this vehicle by running
my story on your website or newsletter? I would be extremely grateful for any help you could provide. I have attached the
only pics of have of the car and they are from 1979.
Thanks for any and all help. My cell number is 903-918-3364. Please feel free to give me a call anytime day or night.
