That's a great story...the spare tire is certainly something most of us think as something which didn't need to be "invented"

Maybe thought of....in any case great story and I always enjoy stories about people's personal lives or family stories

Ken Atchity

Loved this story, Jim. More like this! I had no idea your family was so interesting, though clearly I might have guessed--you being the amazing human being that you are! Will treat my spare tire with more respect now!

Hi Jim Wow what a story about your G.grandfather! And the painting a day guy—a real artist. Speaking of do you see much of dear Carlo M? Suzanne I & stayed at Villa Ca’ Toga (slept in cat through a cage room)years ago, so good to bump into your contagious enthusiasm for everything you encounter.

Howard Rosenberg

Great story Jim.
Thank you for sharing.
I'll think of this story the next time I call CAA to Pearlman my car....

A story that perhaps could only have happened in America. And only to someone with the grit, entrepreneurial spirit, and
vision that personified Louis Perlman

Lesley Keffer Russell

Great story! Over the years, I would have "thanked Louis" if I'd known who he was.
