- On September 21, 2013, a Teetor & Meyer family reunion took place at Lake Wawasee, IN.  Still with          us, first cousins Marjorie Teetor Meyer and Jack Teetor, Sr. discussed with the next generation the            interest of making a film based on Marjorie Teetor Meyer's book, "One Man's Vision The Life of                 Automotive Pioneer Ralph R. Teetor."   And so the journey began.

- Early 2014, Jack Teetor, Jr, began developing an adaptation of his Aunt Marjorie's book into a                    documentary script with his sights on a one-hour film, now expected to be 90 minutes.

  brother Daniel Teetor, signed on as Photo Editor.
