    Boydsters were always boss.

    Shame he had to go early.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention, he died a year ago, the youtube tribute was nice.

    Ah that explains why I never heard of him. I messed around briefly with the racing scenenearly thirty years even helped my Bro-in-law and his best friend put together a supermodified stcock car and took a turn in his pit crew one evening when one of the regulars was sick. All I ever got at the race track was a bad head ache from the fumes and the noise. As for classics half the cars I've ever owned were antiques before I Quit driving them. My work car is a '91 pontiac...

    Long live the American car - beauty, speed, engineering, good jobs - and for those of us who grew up and drove in an 'American Graffiti' world, seeing all this imported stuff is kinda sad. Toyota in NASCAR!!! Not sure what to make of that. We just bought another American car.

    All those particates and chemnicals he was probably exposed to probably didn't help his longevity much, I'll wager.

    My favorite was the red 56 Chevy convvertible with the tan leather interior that he did.

    It was solid red and slightly lowered, with a killer big block engine.
