    I just received a phone call that Charlie Broadbent passed today. At the moment I am very distraught over his passing because of the friendship we had and fun we had growing up working on Hot Rods together. I'm going to miss you Charlie. IMG_0618.JPG

    May your friend rest in peace and may you live every day for the both of you! Pedal to the metal OP!
  10. I am truly sorry for the sudden loss of your close friend,it is hard to except the empty feeling and the racing thoughts of all the adventures & experiences you shared and know you can't pick up the phone and call him.

    When my pal Randy Nash passed away I lost a man that was more a brother than a fiend,life will go on but there will be a void.

    Prayers for the family and friends. HRP

    I feel for you. I have lost several very close friends and it is always the worst events you go through in life
    That's why we have to enjoy every day like it's your last and when we lose some remember to enjoy the ones we have left.

    Don't feel sorry . Celebrate the good memories and you will always have him riding with you when you take your hot rod out. Now go there and do a burnout for good old Charlie. He would not want you to be sad over him.

    So sorry for your loss. I know exactly how you feel. I lost my best friend (a car guy) just over 2 months ago. I think about him every day. Keep in mind all the good times you have had together.
  29. I knew Charlie too, and was very saddened to hear this.
