    Hi, John, I am pretty bummed about Mert. He was basically my best friend and adopted Uncle whien I was in high school. We were next door neighboors at the river, and I got to spend every weekend with Mert. When I was sixteen he asked me to work for him and I drove to the old shop in Signal Hill for the summer. Mert was single at that time and I was able to tag along to all of the car and boat races. He treated me like a son, and let me have full use of all of his toys. He spoiled me pretty well, I had use of 100 M.P.H. Rodgers jet boat, desert buggies, sand cars etc. If it belonged to Mert it was mine to use. If I broke it, he made me learn how to fix it. There were no bad days with Mert.

    I miss those days, and when kids come into my garage asking questions or want to see what projects I am working on, I stop and think of Mert. He had time for me, so I make time for them.

    Rest in Peace Mr. Littlefield you were a great mentor.

    That's a great story! Hats off to Mert for teaching you and for you carrying on the tradition. We all should be so lucky.

    Take care and talk to you later

    What a great guy. He left a legacy. Both in performance, and how to treat others. Guys like him are getting harder and harder to find.
    We are going to miss you, my friend.

    Great story, I called Littlefield blowers one time and had several questions about a combo I was putting together. Talked on the phone for about an hour about it and other B.S. At the end of the conversiation I said that I appriciated all the info and if I could have his name. He said I'm Mert,,,,,,, I paused not realizing who I had been talking to and replied something to the effect of "Oh shit Mr. Littlefield" he said no, its Mert. Cool guy RIP
