Tony Branda

Tony Branda passed away on on August the 14th. Pretty much anyone with a Mustang has heard of him or bought parts from him over the years. Will be strange not seeing him at Carlisle every year.

That is sad. His shop was about 1.5 hrs from my home and I stopped in many times while I had my Boss cars. A good story..I stopped in to pick up a copy of Donald Farr's Boss 302 book 12.95...remember those days. Was telling Tony that my car money had dried up since my daughters were born. He said your kids aren't going to be any cheaper than they are right now. If you want that Boss go find one and buy it...so I did.

What I remember is Tony bringing his new BOSS to show with the BOSS group @ Hershey.
This was a Shelby event.
When I stopped @ Altoona he had the photo of all the BOSS's hanging in his office.
RIP

Tony was a great ford parts vendor and would deliver parts requested to all ford shows so u could look at parts and save shipping troubles and expenses . I have never heard anybody having problems with parts sales from him.  RIP TONY and been great knowing you last 35 years.
