President in 1956 & 1957 – Morrisville, Vermont
Walter Jones, father of Bob Jones, was a charter member of the VAE serving on its first Board of Directors in 1954 and as Vice President in 1955.
Walter’s favorite cars, it is said, were his 1929 PI Rolls Royce and his 1924 Model T Ford Roadster. He was a jeweler by trade and had a fascination and talent for mechanical devices of all sorts – perhaps explaining his appreciation for two automobiles so diverse in concept and execution.
Walter dedicated a great deal of time to the club’s functions and was much revered by the members. His untimely death, while he was serving his second term in office, was a great shock to the members of the VAE who had come appreciate this wonderful gentleman who loved old cars and the people who drove them.
