Fond memories of these Spring Flings in Brown County Indiana from the 1990s with that covered bridge entering the park...

When I went to a SAAC Convention at Charlotte decades ago, Steve was he first SAAC guy that I met.  Years earlier he had lived and worked in Hilo, Hawaii.  Start of a great longtime friendship, especially when working with Paxton superchargers.

On my wall is a framed poster of his green GT350S in front of Shelby American that I had him sign at the Portland Convention.  He didn't want to sign it, but I told him that I had enough CS signatures already and I wanted something unique.  He chuckled and signed it.

Miss him. 8)

I still have that shirt, but it is wore out. I wear it a lot times when I work on my Cobra, reminding me of Steve. What a great guy, I sure do miss him. I also have the Spring Fling Wine Glasses from years ago, and I always have my wine in one of those glass, as tribute to Steve, and to all of the good times we had together. R.I.P. buddy. Brent, if you have any more of those shirts, I would take one.

Thanks Bent. I actually found the Honey West car for Steve thru Lynn Park. Drove that car a number of times.
