Electron Top kicks off its June issue of “Keep in Touch!” with a nod to fathers, particularly the late, great Fred W. Strauss Jr., founder of the company.
Kimmy, office manager at Electron Tops, writes a beautiful dedication to her father, which hopefully many trimmers — as children and maybe even father’s themselves — can relate to:
WE are so grateful to have had a father that was so willing to invest so much of himself for the future and well being of his kids; “strong men create strong children.
In addition to creating a company; Electron Top, for his children to perpetuate, he also, rarely passed the opportunity to teach us something. Dad always said what was on his mind and was fervent in his beliefs, along with being extremely consistent in them. He was never stingy with advice, sometimes over- generous (tongue in cheek) and his wisdom was articulate and clean with solid lessons at their core. …
Men play such an important part in the upbringing of youngsters. While women tend to promote self esteem and love in children … men balance with strength and logic. In a respectful and balanced ecology, this partnership works well in perpetuating a well rounded progeny.
The Father’s Day dedication closes with a list of “Dadisms” that Fred passed on to his children.
The newsletter continues with important pricing and product information you don’t want to miss. Among them:
Electron now makes an original-style, two-tone soft top for the 1961-64 Oldsmobile Starfire. It has a stripe of contrasting color that follows the line of the top above the door glass.
Also, Electron Top has changed the price on the plastic vinyl window for the the 1990-93 Dodge Shadow. It now retails for $280.00.

We’re big fans of Electron’s quality convertible tops, great customer service and commitment to the industry. In fact, Electron Top is one of the few manufacturers left that refuses to sell products directly to the public. Basically, they’re limiting their market to ensure our prices aren’t affected.
