I'm sure everyone knew our great friend Kiwi who unfortunately passed away in a horrific motorcycle accident just over a year ago. For those of you that would like to read about Kiwi, please visit the website below which was created by my brother. Thanks everyone and enjoy.

Great stuff - fascinating learning more about Kiwi and I am truly honored that you included a screen capture of one of my posts from this forum.

There are a few things I don't like about the internet, but at it's best it is a wonderful way to "meet" people, learn and share one's passions.

There are "givers" and there are "takers" - John was clearly a giver and he had a positive effect on lots and lots of us who shared his passion for cars.  Chug a Lug

Never had the pleasure of meeting Kiwi, but feel like I now know him a little.  Looks like he truly lived a full life in a short time.

Such a wonderful tribute.  I had to view it a second time.  Thanks for posting that link.  He will live forever in the hearts of many.

I love this tribute to a man who graced the lives of so many. I began this forum (with Kopecs blessing, Dave Mathews influence and Ron Richards technical expertise ) due to a negative situation the S.A.A.C. was going through at the time. It not only helped the club find resolution which was my main goal, it has brought many amazing friendships together.  "BIGFOOT" and "Kiwi" met here on the forum and got very close. Even Visiting each other while living on opposite coasts. We got together about two weeks after Kiwi's death last year. I thought to myself that guy was quite a regular name here. Always contributing, lending a hand so to speak. It also made me realize how little I have contributed in recent years. The forum has taken on a life of it's own. I am pleased that a negative situation spawned a positive solution that actually changed how the entire club itself now functions. I can only hope that as the forum continues to evolve, we are blessed with a few more members as knowledgeable and conscientious as we had in the late "Kiwi".

    Kiwi was probably the most enjoyable "thorn in my side" I have ever experienced. His enthusiasm meter was always pegged. For those of you who don't know , the engine build was his first yet you can't tell by his writing. The last time we were together was at Classic Industries here in Huntington Beach , and when he said goodbye he said "thanks for being such a great friend" to which I immediately replied "It takes one to know one!" John was a true gentleman and dear friend. RIP Chug a Lug

So glad I opened this post.  What a wonderful and accomplished person.  So sad he is gone.

RIP Kiwi.
