    I just found out that one of the biggest tuners in my area died in a car accident on April 25th :(

    I didn't know this guy personally but I think i've ran into him in a local shop before. On my local board ( very sad day today...matan - AV-Imports.com Forum here's another thread, fondest memories and last goodbyes to our friend mantuner - AV-Imports.com Forum ) everyone has nothing but good things to say about this guy. They still don't know what caused the crash, well at least they haven't updated to say what happened since it's been almost a week. I just found out about it last night and his Memorial Service is being held today at 11:00AM.

    May he RIP...

    "The vehicle slammed into a palm tree on the side of the road, hard enough to uproot it, according to the Ventura City Fire Department."


    That's fast.

    fuck yeah it is... if i remember correctly he had a 11 second AWD Talon as his daily driver, so if he was driving that and being careless, i can see how it happened.
