letter from Frank:

Dear Friends:

As I write this, I am reminded of all the joys...and even the aggravations, I experienced working on my Jensens. Also I am taking this opportunity to thank all of you who have responded to my emails and letters. The kindness, friendships, and associations that I have been blessed with in the Jensen group truly has been a very bright spot in my life. Pure fun, delight and happiness.

I regret that I am not able to continue to be with you.

I will miss all of you, dear friends.

Carry on. Keep the Jensens running and the Marque alive. Keep them "up front" where they belong.

Frank Schwartz

What an incredibly sad news.
I enjoyed reading Frank's posts and his knowledge about our beloved cars.

RIP Frank

I was lucky enough to meet Frank and Mark at the 2018 Jensen East meet in North Carolina.

He was great to chat to, and always willing to help; here he is with Stratton Hickey sorting out an issue with his Interceptor.

A great bloke.
