Sad to hear.  Mike was a great guy.

Prayers for his family. 
This car is a pile of crap. Noisy, rattly, slow and underpowered and has a reputation for being unreliable. I want one.

I'm very saddened by the passing of Chopper1, I had numerous conversations with him, he was a very knowledgeable and decent guy. My condolences to his family.

Very sad to hear about Chopper's passing.  I got to meet Mike at his club's car show in April 2016. We had a nice long talk about cars, tools, and grandchildren (I had just found out that I was going to be a grandfather).  I went to the show again last month, but I didn't see him.  Really sorry that I missed him.  I'll be praying for him and his family.

This is sad sad shocking news. A great member and fellow tool enthusiast!

May he rest in peace, and thoughts and prayers with his family and friends.

 I just know there was another a picture of him somewhere in a car or by a car. Can't remember where I saw it, a long time ago.
