This is truly sad news if true. I did not see anything about this on Facebook. Can anyone confirm this terrible news?

I just saw him on Thursday, him and I were working on my car together he seemed to be in great health and his dad, what happened :(

I hope it wasnt that Joker GT-R... he said it was going to the dyno.

Unbelievable. When I was having engine issues and posted on here, he messaged me and gave his number to text him for advice. Never dealt with him outside of that but he seemed like an awesome dude and obviously we all saw how much he posted on here and helped the community. Huge loss to the community. Be careful everyone.

 

RIP

Just in shock, literally just saw him. Very nice guy, might be misunderstood, but very cool, but he had a family... wife & kid. Very sad.

OMG....this is so sad. Doug was a friend and great customer of mine. We just talked a couple weeks ago.

Feel very bad for his family. RIP my friend.

 

Probably a good reminder of how we all need to be more careful with the street missiles we love.......

My condolences to his family, friends and coworkers. I just recently made a purchase from him. He was very helpful no matter what time of day or night. Really a sad situation. RIP.
