I saw that. He was one of the best hot rod builders out there. His designs were just stunning... He will certainly be missed, may he rest in peace

He was not my favourite man, but I have to admit, he was a genius when it came to cars. That man loved to make his cars look good and he knew how to get the job done.

I know he will be missed, and I feel sorry for his family and friends.

I met him while touring his shop two years ago. He definately knew how to assemble a talented crew. He and his wife Jo were also up here in St Paul last summer signing autographs at the "Back to the 50'* Show". He looked good. This is definately a surprise.

On the TV show he seemed like a jerk, but you cannot deny his work. RIP.
