  • Belated Bereavement - Sanford M. Block, aka Sandy, aka Cigar Sandy

    I spoke with John (oldschool1) from the Mark VII club and owner of PINKIN at Carlisle. I knew Sandy was very sick the last time I heard about him but did not know he passed. John said he made a post here but I can't find it, so below in quotes is what was posted on the Mark VII site.

    For the people that have not been around a long time Sandy was one of the original guys here. He provided Alexander a lot of the Mark VIII build information on our web site. He was a one of a kind character and a walking encyclopedia of automotive knowledge. He must have quit the club 100 times but finally moved a few years on after he sold his Mark VIII and got a Town Car

    RIP Sandy

    Myself, Sandy's son Matt, Sandy, Norm (redn8), circa 2000

    Sanford M. Block, 65, of Bloomfield died July 5, 2012. Born in Newark, he lived in Maplewood for 38 years before moving to Bloomfield in 1984.

    An avid car collector, Mr. Block spent his working life in the retail automobile business at Livingston Dodge and later at Maplewood Dodge. He also owned the Olympic Motor Car Company in Irvington. He penned an award-winning softcover book dedicated to the Chrysler Imperial automobile. He was a recipient of the Dodge Delta Sales Award for excellence in consumer satisfaction and was a member of Chrysler Corporation’s Professional Sales Association.

    He is survived by his wife, Karen, and his son, Matthew of Bloomfield.

    Services were held July 8 with arrangements by Menorah Chapels at Millburn, Union. Memorial contributions may be made to the Saint Barnabas Medical Center Foundation
