Sorry to hear that, he was quite a character. Had some pretty "spirited" conversations over the years as I'm sure many on the net have. Godspeed Dave angel

His restoration skills were unequalled. Cancer......what form? He was a health nut / body builder.
RIP Dave.

Happens to the best, no one is exempt.

I had not heard he was ill, maybe why he sold off some cars in the past couple years? Or longer I just recall seeing him and his wife on a auction program.

I hate to hear that. Dave was an absolutely brilliant guy, and the epitome of a perfectionist! He and I had an hours long PM conversation on here one night about 69 Trans Ams. He liked those cars too. I knew he was sick, and put off calling ECS to ask him a question that I would have only trusted him to answer. Guess I waited to long. frown R.I.P. Dave

One of the most unique, driven, and highly successful individuals I have ever met, bar none. Along the way beginning many years ago, I was happy to have supplied some of the samples for tags and labels that he reproduced to the utmost accuracy, and as many of you know, there was no way that a phone conversation with him about the most minute detail of a part or restoration process would end in UNDER an hour or more!

Deepest condolences to Cindy and children.

More like a passion for knowing he was right and he was right lots and lots of times even though some (including me) would never admit it to Dave. Still have saved many pm's from discussions "offline" that we had and man he was a good fighter and debater. Truly going to miss him. If he didn't like you or didn't like what you posted then he let you know probably what I most respected about Dave. up And man could he push your buttons, you had to know when to seek another thread or topic and just move on. Sorry to see Dave move on to that higher forum, he was someone in this hobby that raised the bar for everyone. up

RIP Dave. Great for the hobby and one of the most meticulous restoration experts I’ve ever met. We became friends after meeting at the Nats during the presentation and discussion of his incredible Challenger. The MoPar and classic car world lost a great enthusiast.

RIP Dave.




Dave was diagnosed with brain cancer, I knew he was sick for some time, hopefully he made the best of his time he had left after his diagnosis?... he could be quite the card at times, and I admired his "style", he surely was a wealth of knowledge, energy and talent that will be missed

Big loss. He really elevated the art of restoration.
His restoration work was laborious, well researched, and exquisite.

The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.
