It is very appropriate that "Dr. Crankenstein's Drag Racing Adventures" ends with the last chapter posted. I believe Kim wrote more but it is lost. I know there was a tragedy at the end of it all.

Well, there's a tragedy at the end of this, now.

I'm having a real problem believing this.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Colin has another chapter.

Glen, when I read his obituary, it really sunk in. It contains a lot of information about the guy. And what a guy he was, as we know. More of a friend than some of my face to face friends.

His obituary is such a fitting tribute to his life. I feel privileged to have met him so briefly. I had a doctor appointment in Regina on the 17th 9 days before he passed. I left home early for the 3.5 hour drive hoping to get there early enough to surprise him with a visit, but the roads were so bad I didn't have time. I feel so bad.

Well guys, in light of the extremely sad news, unless Bob comes up with some more chapters out of the blue, this is the last. Unlucky Chapter #13. I've included some photos that were attached to the email string, not sure where they belonged but figured they should be seen.

Also, Dr. C added this: "I just realised... I forgot to attach photos to my last message. (Sorry Ďbout that.) Here they are starting with Abeís Chevy II. (I believe one shot is from Brainerd, but Iím not sure.) My buddy Bert wrote a page about his own racecar and includes some facts about our friend Abe here

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

What a big loss for our little family here. I'm sure going to miss him.
