Oscar,

   Rest in peace my friend, I will miss you in your Yellow Stutz race car roaming the back roads of the Pocono's.

I only ordered a few things, but spent hours going over the catalogs.

RIP Oscar.   

Met him a few times.  Nice guy.   Sorry to hear that another of the old timers has taken the checkered flag.

PRDA forever!

Sorry to hear Mr. Koveleski is gone.

Saw him race back in the day as a kid.

Was very much looking forward to hearing speaking a couple years ago at the SAAC convention but he had to leave during the dinner.
