I never got the chance to meet him, but he was def. a good guy. I was looking at making a semi-large purchase from someone and he sent me a PM to call him...never spoke to him prior to this. I called and he gave me the 411 on the deal, saved me a big headache! That phone call lasted a lot longer than I expected and really enjoyed talking to him. He went out of his way to help someone he didn't really know other than a few messages back and forth here on Moparts. Another good one gone. angel

Sad to hear. Years ago when I was in NJ I'd looked him up just based on his reputation, was invited over, but couldn't find his place in the time I had, and have regretted that ever since. Had to settle for the occasional internet back-and-forth, but it was obvious that he was quite a character and would have been fun to hang out with.

Historical significance notwithstanding it was a race car and he drove it as such.

THAT is true he drove the sh*% out of whatever he was in the seat of He took a S%M car on the guardrail--beat the rocker back out and went again the next week---Ole Fred had one of the most solid "old school" history books in the business--he did it--he LOVED it and he really loved folks and helped everybody that crossed his path His posse around his home was solid and loyal as could be--it was obvious to me they loved the guy--and respected him--
He turned me on to a couple of recipes--the wildest tuna sandwich mix ever! Showed me how to grade Cragar Super tricks and buy them, my truck had engine light come on while visiting he made one phon ecall I went down the street two blocks busted in line and was done , fixed, and gone in 15 minutes for a wave--
he took me to a Fuel injection guru he knew --who in 10 minutes told me how to do my Hilborn and it worked perfect ever since!
He was a hustler!

This is terrible news. Fred was such a good guy. I've known Fred for about 10 years. He bought my black Duster back in '09. Very sad news. Rest in peace, my friend.
