    It's a very sad day...he will be missed without question. Total pioneer in the Hot Rod industry and perfectionist. Horrible loss.

    I grew up around hot rods/drag racing....my dad was featured in hot rod magazine may/1962 and others. He held a track record @ Fremont Drag Strip and also died @ a young age - 42 Machinist/Perfectionist as well.

    Guys like this can teach you soooooo much.

    Sad to hear this, what a loss to the hot rod community. I guess that's why "American Hot Rod" didn't come back this year.
