John and Ann e-mailed last night and told me he was ill again and not doing well.
He loved cutting those tops and razing this OHI-Ya Guy....

RIP my friend...

Carl had a Maroon Chopped '55 Buick that he built around 1980 or '81. Car was in Texas for some time but think it may be back here in Minnesota now. Carl and his family attended some of the early KKOA events with this car.

I recall walking around Chopped Mercs once with Carl. Took him a long time to find one that he thought was done right. A very talented Man who built more cars then I can count and he will be DEEPLY missed by many many people.

So sorry to hear of Carl's passing. I was lucky enough be introduced to Carl a few years ago by a long time friend of mine, Buzz Magnuson. Carl always had a a big smile on his face and treated me like he had known me for ever. He always asked me how my hot rod truck build (my first) was coming along and gave me some excellent advice on how to chop the top, etc. I never missed a chance to go with Buzz to see what Carl was building next and was always impressed with what that guy could do and how he made everything look so easy. He was a local legend and will be missed.
