    That sounds like the Paul we all know and love a true hot rodder to the very end. The car world will not be the same.

    Absolutely terrible news....

    I exchanged a few PM's with Paul and understood how compassionate, and passionate he was to share and teach his knowledge about this thing we love so dearly.... Hot Rodding!

    Paul and Marge were part of the rolling bones family so we feel we speak for all of us when we say Paul was a true gentleman and defined the term hot rodder. Over the years he made many trips with us and while his roadster may not be there Paul will take turns riding shotgun with us all. Ken and Keith

    My condolences to Pauls family. I met Paul and saw his roadster when he was on his way to Bonneville with the Rolling Bones a couple years ago.

    WOW, that's very sad news. A nicer guy you'll never meet and a real inspiration. He was living a hotrodders dream. He sure did make a lot of friends along the way. Pedal to the metal Paul.

    This is a very sad day,Paul was just an allround good guy and always took time to say hi when ever I saw him.To this day I still can't figure out how he fit in that A and when I would ask him he would say " adrenalin ".
    God Bless You Paul

    Our friend Chuck Vranas sent me the following email and very special pictures of Paul at his best...I have to share them for everyone...

    Hi Keith,
    This is truly a sad day. Paul was one of the finest people I have had the opportunity to have known in life it was an honor to have had him as a close friend. Here are a few images of Paul and his beloved roadster from Bonneville and the Grand National. It seems like yesterday we were cruising on the salt in his roadster. My thoughts and prayers are with Marge and the family.

    I met Paul a little over a year ago, and really only spoke with him that one time.
    Truly a gentleman, with a tremendous passion for Hot Rods.
    I always enjoyed reading his posts!
    I am saddened by his passing. Rest in Peace Paul.

    Paul always had great posts here on the HAMB. I finally got to meet him and see his Roadster at the Secrets of Speed Meet in Mass about 5 years ago. I didn't know him real well but he sure made an impression as a really nice guy. There are a lot of photos of him and his Roadster, but the one that will always stick out as the best in my mind was the one with his grandson riding shotgun in it. Prayers going out to family and friends.
