My Pop was one of the greats. We always had a great time in his garage working on his various projects. I got to ride in many of the old classics and even a few odd balls like one of the first electric cars.

As I grew up and joined the Navy, he later told me some of his old Army adventures. Including staying at Fort Ord where I had been to when I went to postgraduate school.

There are many fond memories that I will continue to think back on and I am sure he will be missed sorely by those closest to him. He was a great human being, who didn't mince words when it came to his opinions. I will definitely miss him. Love you and Rest in Peace, Pop....Say hi to Grandmother for me ;)

The world was a better place, because of Clyde Majors. We and our family were friends with Clyde for many, many years. He always had a smile, lots of jokes, and lots of memories to share, when we were with him. He always had one, two or three of our trailers at all times, and enjoyed using them and selling them for us. He kept beautiful cars and trucks - and always wanted to "look good", and he did that. He was an inspiration to everyone he was around.

He was a great friend, and we will miss him greatly. Rest in Peace - Clyde - our very dear friend.

Tom and Pat Hudson (Tommy's Trailers), and family.

My family met Clyde when starting to race with Sprint Series of Texas many years ago. It didn't take long for him to take us under his wing and we quickly became family. He had a way about him, people always wanted to be near him and his smile was infectious. He was quick to offer advice, help or just an ear if needed to all but each of these were accompanied by a beer. Sitting with him in his shops in Carrollton and Graford were some of my favorite memories with Clyde. He was a hard worker with a big heart and was one of the best men I knew. We were blessed to have had him in our lives and are forever changed by him and his love.

I first met Clyde in 1968. I was in High school. He had his automotive center in Carrollton behind Mary Evelyn donuts. Clyde helped me with a motor issue and wouldn't take any money for it. We became friends then. Clyde loved people. No better proof of that than his house and shop. If the shop outdoor light was on, he was inside the shop or on the porch swing. Come in, sit a spell and have a cold Coors Light. There were very few days that he was there by himself. I know we all missed that when he moved off. That's OK, he is home now and Jayne is waiting...….
This picture is special. It's all the original racers for the Sprint Series of Texas. Clyde owned three of the original sprint cars. Smiley donated this shirt and we gave this to Clyde a few years back. Clyde spent little time in getting this shirt in a cool shadow box. Gonna miss this guy...…
Your friend.....Brewster
Rest in Peace Clyde

As I write this, I must admit, my world is fractured. Last week this world lost one of the most amazing people it has ever known. My world lost a part of its foundation. So many of my very best memories from adolescence have lost their star. Clyde Majors may not have been a man of great stature but to me, he was larger than life.
Thanks to him I grew up in a world of cars that others just fantasize about. I had the pleasure of being his co-pilot for many years, to so many car shows, and in a multitude of amazing automobiles. Street rods, hot rods, domestic, foreign, and even hand built cars. Many people thought he was my grandfather and while we didn't share blood, I never corrected anyone because he was family in my heart. I always felt like I had a backstage pass to life by growing up around him. He was well known in the car community and by riding with him I had access to it all. It felt like being sidekick to a rockstar as we arrived at a show. I have so many fond memories of him that I won't bother to try and put them all here. It would take days to type them all out.
I just hope Saint Peter polished the gates and that the chariot awaiting Clyde is lowered. I'd hate to think of him riding in stock when he was made to ride in style. I know he wanted to make it to 100 and he damn near did, but I am comforted by the thought of his reunion with Miss Jayne.
Race in Peace Clyde. May your cars he clean, your burnouts nasty, and the lights all green.
