    Messanger of sad news

    Hey all,
    Its been a while since I have been on this site, still a great site for our cars. Yeah I still own mine and in the process of a supercharger build.
    That being said I bring bad news.
    One of our fellow Marauder friends has passed away yesterday, Dave K. (blazen71). I can see that he was on the site last week and was pretty active in helping others on
    this site with builds as he had a great knowledge of these cars. I met Dave and a few others from this site and I am still very goods friends with them, Dave being one of them.
    I have know Dave for at least 16 years, he lived only a few miles from my house so we hung out in our garages quite a bit. I could always count on Dave for help or info on car stuff.
    Dave was a genuine guy always willing to help someone out with cars.
    He will be missed very much.
    R.I.P. brother.

    I never met him in person, but I always thought he knew his stuff and his posts were informative. I'll miss reading his posts, I hope he's doing burnouts where ever he is.
