I met the Colonel while working at Chris Volz Motors in Milan Indiana. I believe he lived in Seymour Indiana at that time. I was a mechanic at the GM dealer while in high school and until 1973. The Colonel bought new Cadillacs and I became his preferred mechanic. He would have been 70 years old at that time. He was very friendly and always dressed in his famous white suit. Maybe I should have asked him for a job in the chicken business?
