      It has been exactly a quarter-century since Ed Herzog passed away. More than anyone, Ed kept thousands of Crosleys on the road. Ed stepped up when all was lost on July 3rd, 1952 and preserved the stock of factory parts that most certainly would otherwise have been scrapped by General Tire.

      I'm trying to learn more about Ed for an online biography and memorial, but information on him is scarce. Any details would be appreciated. Thanks

      July 7, 1982: Service Motors' Ed Herzog, 41-year Crosley dealer, dies in Florida
      Saturday July 7, 2007
      All Day
      (This event repeats every year.)
      Location: Pompano Beach, Florida.
      Street: CROSLEY CAR OWNERS CLUB (CCOC) - 4526 29th Avenue
      City State Zip: Kenosha, Wisconsin 53140-3044
      Phone: (262) 652-3034

      Notes:
      Edward Herzog, president and part-owner of Service Motors, passes after an over four-decade association with Crosley automobiles. When General Tire bought Crosley Motors in 1952, he attempted to assemble the resources to resume Crosley production elsewhere. Though unsuccessful, he acquired the remaining new parts stock and maintained a full-service Crosley parts and machining service until his retirement in 1981, and Service Motors itself continues today. His 1982 eulogy stated "He has done more to keep Crosleys on the road than any man."
