The Saga of Rumpsville, the Backstory.

In the newly updated section called “Saga of Rumpsville” or as the cover has it “Saga of Rumpville by Arin Cee” we have the complete CARtoon story of Rumpsville. I can only do this with special thanks to the Millar family and Pete Millar himself.

Before Pete passed away in 2003 I was in contact with him and had asked if he would look at my website and with his permission allow me to publish high resolution images of his original Saga of Rumpville. Needless to say he was very gracious and gave me his approval. After his passing I contacted the Millar family to make sure they were comfortable with me continuing the project. Without hesitation I was given the go ahead.

The website has gone through several revisions and the saga story fell to the waste side as technology changed and my vision of how the story should be presented changed. Recently, after a year long hiatus from Rumpsville I decided to create a new page simple called “Saga of Rumpsville“. I hope you enjoy the complete story reproduced from my very own first edition.

R.I.P. Ed Woodard

EdWoodard

I can not begin to describe how great the loss of Ed Woodard will weigh on the hot rod community in the Mid-Tennessee area. Mr. Woodard was a larger than life person who could hold court with the best of them.

Mr. Woodard worked for Holly and several other aftermarket brand names over the years. He was a car show promoter who brought in legends like Ed Roth and Norm Grabowski to the area in the early 60’s and continued to do so for the many years to follow.

I met Ed Woodard about 15 years ago. I had met Norm Grabowski previously and Norm asked were I was from. I told him I was actually new to the Nashville, Tennessee area and Norm replied “You need to call my old friend Ed Woodard”.

It did not take long to hunt down Mr. Woodard, he was well known within the the Mid-Tennessee hot rod community. I introduced myself and I immediately had a new friend. Mr. Woodard always made me feel welcome and continued to invite me into his circle of friends over the years that followed. I feel blessed that I was able to speak with him last month at a local rod run. Today I am reminded how honored I was to met Ed Woodard and all his close friends.
