For anyone interested, here is an obituary for Bill.  It also includes a video which has lots of pics of the Shelbys and Mustangs he owned over the years.  God's speed Bill.

Sorry to read it.  He looked to be in good shape.  I don't get it.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

I knew Bill Norton personally from the Valley Ford Days.  Truly helpful and kind in every way.  He exited So Ca like many of us did because of liberal politics. He lived outside of San Antonio until his wife passed from cancer a few years back. I still have a Valley Ford Catalog I posted a while back.

I'll keep Bill Herndon and his family in my thoughts and prayers.

I enjoyed buying (and occasionally selling) to Bill for decades - Wow, 30+ years goes by pretty darn quick. - We are losing allot of talent and knowledge in the hobby.  :-\
