This would seem the place to share the sad news that Torrans Manufacturing Co., an outfit that produced stamped steel “motel chairs,” is calling it quits. Their website says they’re selling out what remains of their inventory, which ain’t much.

I bought two chairs from them in recent years and am pleased with the quality. It was the thought that I might buy more that had me visiting their website today.

Sad new indeed.

This is just a little before my time, seeing how I moved to Seattle in 1968. Hydroplane racing was still a BFD out that way when I landed there. Not so much anymore. It’s a whole lot safer now, though, what with the jet fighter canopies and onboard oxygen and escape hatches (those things have been known to get upside down).
