Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

Appearing in the JT column of the Natchitoches Times last week there was a good story about a group of men all relaxing getting ready for the car show that was about to occur in Natchitoches. Some of those men consisted of Barry Guillet and Gary DeBileux. It was a big deal and people were really excited. There were 360 cars lining the river bank, Front Street and much of Second Street. Over 600 catfish dinners were served Friday night. A lot of money went into these cars and they were beautiful. This particular car belonged to Dr. Steve Brown. I think it was a 1957 Chevrolet in mint condition and fully restored. It was parked initially in front of the office of Barry Guillet, Realtor. Dr. Brown left the car for a short while and someone from Guillet’s office went out and put a sign in the window of the car, which stated “For Sale - $2,875.00 - Must Sell Today”.

The phone number that they put on the sign was the Natchitoches Police Department. Naturally this sparked a lot of interest to those passing by. One fellow did come by and asked Guillet and his buddy DeBileux and they stated that the owner had left and was in a financial bind because he and his wife were about to divorce. The phone number that they put on the “For Sale” sign was the Natchitoches Police Department’s phone number.
