I met him at Atco a few years back. He was really busy with his Duster at the time so we don't get to talk much. I hate he passed away as he had a lot of knowledge and seemed like a good person. RIP Fred !!

Always enjoyed his phone calls....I usually just listened while he talked with some of his crazy stories....I will miss him as well.

Anyone know more about what happened? I do not have Faceblock and cannot see anything of his on that sight.

Sorry to read this. I talked to Fred several times on the phone. He sent pictures of the Dusters Moon Shot and the 57 Plymouth Pro Mod to my grandson. And who can forget the Pimp Doll? RIP Fred.... angel

Had a very interesting talk with him at Monster Mopar in Indy a few years ago. Gave him a hug too, which he seemed to enjoy. LOL.

RIP Fred. xoxo

Yes he beat the snot out of that car and I loved it! I think Ronnie did too. I know they became friends later in life.

I always enjoyed Fred's posts. I remember the day he put up the pictures of that Duster doing the monster wheelie and coming down on the guardrail. He was so cool about the entire deal. Someone asked, "What was going through your mind when your back bumper hit the ground?" Fred said, "I was thinking, YEEEEEEHAAAAAW!!!"

Sadly rarely checking up on Moparts... to spot this very unfortunate thread tonight.. sad to read the loss of Fred, last time I saw him was in York, PA about 12 years ago, dug up an old picture. Remembered, as a great person, welcomed me to visit for a Ronnie Sox event, inspired me to build my tribute car back then, super friendly welcome, as I traveled from Canada by myself, he made sure I arrived ok, even rang me up in my hotel room the next morning to make sure I arrived, for someone that I never met, he was like a friend within a minute I met him. A minute, a lifetime, would have been what I enjoyed spending with Fred. RIP our friend, sincere condolences.
Mike
