Thanks for all the kind words and thoughts For those who didn't know A.D. "Supercomp" He was a paraplegic He was in a freak accident in 1969 while making a turn in the car he was driving with a friend not going fast at all and one side of the front suspension broke throwing him from the car and breaking his neck while passenger was not hurt It took them 3 days to figure out his neck was broken with the doctor that finally diagnosed it told him if he had seen him when it first happened he might of been able to walk again Unfortunately that never happened He survived 51 years that way Definitely not the norm To add insult to his injury for the last couple of years he lost the ability to use his hands making him a Quad So he was unable to post here on Moparts at all anymore Up until the very end his mind was always sharp and spot on What he retained was unbelievable on facts numbers dimensions You name it he retained it especially if it pertained to MOPARS He was out of Missouri his whole life and our home track is Gateway in Madison Illinois now called World Wide Technology Raceway Thanks again for those who have read and commented it TRULEY means a lot
