I worked at the Wood Brothers for a few years.  We were located in Mooresville, NC then.  We didn't see too much of Mr.Glenn , he was up in Stuart, VA most of the time (there home/shop for most of their lives).  But his brother, Mr. Leonard was at the shop 4 days a week (he musta bern mid 70's then???) and was pretty dang good on a lathe, and at telling a good tale!  The whole family were super nice, grat people to work for / with.  They have done a lot for auto racing.  He will be missed.
