David C. Evans lived life in the slow lane.

The Ford Motor Co. retiree and member of United Auto Workers Local 1250 loved all sorts of antique vehicles.

For many years, he served as president of the Medina County Antique Power Association, a group that restores and exhibits antique cars, trucks, tractors, engines and lawn mowers.

He and his wife, Fae, were a familiar part of the landscape in Medina, Ohio, tooling around in a 1913 or 1925 Model T.

Click here to read about The Dash Between Nov. 15, 1946, when Evans was born in Cleveland, and Aug. 13, 2011, when he died of complications from heart ailments at age 64. The Dash was published in the Sept. 5 edition of the Medina County Gazette.
