  • WALTER TROUTMAN, Why did you go?
    Posted on: 2011-11-12
    I live in Ireland now and am planning a Christmas Cruise to So. Florida and the Caribbean. I thought while I was there, I'd look up Walter Troutman, so I googled his name to try to get his new phone number when his obituary came up. OMG, I'm devastated; the tears are flowing as I write this... remembering the amazing times I shared in my early twenties with Walter in Miami and The J.C. It was MAGICAL! I met Walter Troutman in the 70's; charismatic, charming, with a personality that didn't quite fit the surroundings. He was like (forgive me for this), but he was like a farmer displaced. I think that's what drew me to him as it probably did many a folk. At the time I was living in the D.C. area but fell in love with Miami & quickly moved there with my 20 something vision of dreams fulfilled. I became a J.C. Member and enjoyed the lifestyle; the tennis; the Sunday luncheon's out by the marina; the fabulous food and who could forget those Sunday Brunches that Tino put on? Oh my, how utterly fantastic! And, every so often, Walter would walk in with his clothes that looked like they sat in the dryer too long (it was so humbling and yet so warming), but he had this presence about him; he was larger-than-life and he knew it. So often, he would try to get this young girl up to his penthouse to see his 'etchings'; he tried and tried and I just kept saying: 'Oh Walter' - but we remained good friends until I moved away to the Bay Area; even then, we would talk every so often. I ended up working there as Director of Special Events which I thoroughly and utterly enjoyed. I have never found anything that I loved more in life. I recall one day while I was preparing a Special Event for Celebrities and Walter walked into my office. He said: 'I have a date for you'. I asked who it was? He said he's famous; his name is Julio Iglesias. I'm not one to swear but I said to him: 'Who the hell is Julio Iglesias? Sorry, Walter, but I'm not interested.' Walter told me that one day I'd be very sorry. Little did I know that one day Julio would become famous in America. Well, I was ONLY a twenty something; you can forgive me for that, can't you???? Anyway, back to my reason for googling Walter. I was hoping to have lunch with him and remember the good old days at the famous J.C. Yes, it truly WAS MAGICAL and my heart yearns to relive those days... what I wouldn't give to relive those days... to see Walter on his bike riding up the drive. RIP my friend. Nancy Brady, RN (Special Events Director at the Jockey Club many years ago). If there's anyone out there that would like to reconnect, please email me at (I look forward to hearing from you!)

    Yes we make house calls

    Remember there's no way to have it all, if you want quality you can't expect to get it either free or cheap. If you got your car fixed cheap, I say to you, be careful.

    I don't do this part time, on the side or to moon light this is my full time job. This is what I do for a living.

    When was the last time your regular shop offered you to come to your place and fix your car?

    Use our services because of our quality, convenience etc, not because of how much we charge.

    Your safety is # 1 with us' We go to Key Largo too.

    You need and appointment because we want to be there for sure and on time. We don't like to play.

    We don't work 24/7 because; think about it, where am I going to find parts in the middle of the night? Besides, I need to rest too no?
