Updated visit to Dean Weller's garage in 2010
Wagner's Classic Cars
Dean Weller's Grandpa's Old Ford Garage became the most visited page on Kansastravel.org for several years and in 2010 I returned to DeSoto, Kansas to catch up with Dean and learn what new projects he had completed. Dean was modest about his accomplishments. He is not seeking celebrity, and although he is warm and courteous with visitors, he finds visitors a distraction that take him away from his auto restoration hobby.
Dean liked to start a project at the beginning of each year and usually finished before the hot weather of summer. He had a bit later start on the Ford Sportster he was restoring in 2010 and apologized that it will probably take well into summer to complete this year's project. 2014 Update: Dean says that he has run out of floor space and will be starting no more projects.
I feel blessed to have met Dean Weller and have this opportunity to preserve a record of his amazing automotive art. I plan to return and photograph the competed Ford Sportster latter in the year.
