Bruce, I’m truly sorry to hear about the loss of your good friend Dave. Reading your description of Dave, and what a remarkable friend he was, makes me want to strive to be a better friend to those in my circles. Thanks for sharing.

When Bruce called me with the news of Dave's passing I was totally shocked. He was truly a genuine, honest, "car crazy" guy. From almost the first time I met him he was always after me to sell him my car (even putting a note on my car one time that said "Will be Dave's someday")!! He said it was because of a Nova he had back in the day. What everyone is saying about his cars is so true. A perfectionist to the extreme. His cars, in my eyes, were even too nice to drive!! I never did see him drive anyone of them in "anger", so to speak.

He mentioned one time that he had never got to ride in my car. Well a few years ago, I made a point of taking him for a ride to remember!! When I "got on it", he was giggling like a little kid!! He said that was the most fun he'd had in a long time!! Glad I could accommodate you Dave!

My condolences to his wife Bird and brother Marty.

Rest in peace my brother...................

So sad, I only have spoken with Dave a few times, but he was held in high esteem by everyone in the hobby. We lost a great one and he will be missed... RIP

Self-made man, that came from nothing. Competitive, driven, hard working, and honest as could be. Took care of those around him. He was '' the friend", if you were allowed only one phone call...now I'm screwed! You'll truly be missed!

Just left Bird, and the phone hasn't stopped ringing. Maybe give her a little time if you plan on calling, or stopping by- just a thought.

Bruce, Thanks sharing these episodes on Dave and his cars. I never got to meet him but I do recall his presence on the website. Consider it a honor to have spent time on this earth as one of his close friends. You will meet again and go over old times. May his family feel the joy of his dedicated friends. RIP Dave.

Thanks Bruce, see you soon.

Absolutely-I looks forward to seeing you.


I am glad that she was able to talk with me last night for a bit. She is a strong woman!

Sorry to hear of his passing, I didn't know him, but he sounds like the kind of guy we all want to know.
