December 2020 Donation to the Highwayman
Mopar Club San Diego presented a check for $600 to Tom Weller, aka The Highway Man, Saturday, Dec. 12, 2020,
at KUSI-TV studios. Weller spent 50 years driving San Diego freeways, offering free assistance to stranded
motorists, asking only that they "pay it forward." Weller retired in 2016, and now he needed help to get a
new set of teeth. As a thank you for his decades of selfless service to SD motorists, the Mopar Club donated
$500, and new MCSD member Geoff Fischer added in another $100. MCSD President Jeff Walker presented the $600
check as Weller was interviewed by Dave Stahl on KUSI-TV. Weller, his faithful pal, Sadie, and one of his
now-retired rescue vehicles are pictured here, along with MCSD member Bob Gough. Weller's vehicle is a 1956
Mercury Amblewagon, built and originally used as an ambulance before he got it.
