    Sad news

    Just wanted to let everyone know that Mike has passed away.

    Some may not know that Mike was one of the original owner’s of this forum, it was called Steel City Stangs.

    This is so sad! I really liked Mike. I used to stop and visit him at the shop when I would get the chance just to BS and grab lunch. I enjoyed talking to him and check out the projects he was working on.

    Man, I don't know where to start. A Veteran. A highly skilled mechanic. An entrepreneur who took a chance and built a great business. Someone who dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's with a great enthusiasm. Just a real down to earth guy who had a passion for going fast. He was one of us, a racer, a brother. May he rest in peace.

    I’m just at a loss of what to say.

    For a few seasons, Mike and I hung out at some of the NMRA stuff, we did some real damage at a few bars in Ohio, just a great guy to sit and talk with

    We was on our way to Bowling Green when my dad died, Mike sent stuff home not only as a friend, but because he knew he was a Veteran. The respect he had for other veterans was what I will always remember about him.

    God rest his soul. .

    Thanks for sharing PJ. Definitely a sad loss for the local car community. Mike's shop in Robinson was very close to my house so I would stop in from time to time. So sad to hear he is gone way too soon

    Was shocked to find out when I saw the Wolfpack liquidation auction listed. Mike was a great guy, used to stop and talk to him when he was in Robinson. Think about him everytime I use the engine hoist and stand that he traded me for shop beer ��. RIP Mike.

    No one should pass away at 46. So very sad!
