Hey folks, was having a conversation with Jan Gilmer today about his cars and what not, great guy to shoot the s#@t with, and in the conversation Jan tells me about 3 years ago a New York sanitation worker sees a complete Gilmer Midget racer sitting on top a pile of garbage, the worker confronts the lady and says "you don't want to get rid of that do you?" she says yes take it.

Who the hell heard of this story, anyone??

Btw Jan is a little bummed out these days as he found out that he has Parkinson last year and doing good with physical therapy. Jans' a great guy in my book.

Spot on Emilio, in your assessment of Jan as a great guy. I had the pleasure to spend a day at his home and shop in 2011. He certainly has a story or 2 to tell. Jan's help in me restoring my Gilmer midget, has not been forgotten. Sad to hear about his health. Pass on my best wishes next time you speak to him.
I had heard the tale of the midget in the trash, but from where or who, I'm not sure.
