Sorry to hear.

Talked to him at Wal-Mart parking lot one day and didn't even relieze who he was until he intruduced himself to my wife. He was asking what in the Hell that ugly thing was we had loaded on the trailer.


It was The PIG!!!!


Cool down to earth guy.

Terrible to hear. Met him at Barret Jackson and made my day. I was about 11 years old at the time and his "people" were asking him to leave, but he stayed until the line for signatures was gone. I was the last in line.
