May God bless "Uncle Jim" -- he is forever remembered by us Klesch kids as the cool guy with the flat top haircut and awesome white '67 Chevy Camaro convertible. Obviously, it was the envy of my dad as later Uncle Jim "bequeathed" it to him, and it got him his first speeding ticket with us kids in the back seat :) That spirit inspired me to get my own "not so cool / not so fast" '83 Chrysler Lebaron convertible when I was in the Marine Corps. With sincere condolences to the Landis family -- son John Klesch & family in Virginia
