  2. Apparently he and Dennis were travelling to the Paris flea market when Mark hit some black ice, spun out and hit a tree. Dennis died at the scene. Mark is in serious but stable condition with a deflated lung and multiple fractures. (I have not heard any new details since last night.)

    We're all pulling for you @Fast Elvis!

    Terrible news!!!! I was at the Paris swap meet on Sunday and driving conditions getting there were quite unfavorable. Lots of heavy moisture laden snow falling, creating lots of slush on the road surface. You had to drive slowly according to the road conditions. 2017 is getting off to a very poor start as we have lost too many really good hot rod people already, and now this tragic accident. My sincere condolences to the Dennis Wilson family and many friends. Hang in there Mark and get yourself all healed up. All of us here need the "Prez" to help all of us along and to make sure we are all pointed in the right direction.

    I'm not sure if you were at the afternoon visitation or evening one. I know for the evening visitation, I arrived at 7:10 and gave my condolences just before 11. It was truly warming to see how many turned out to pay their respects. Lots of club jackets in the mix.

    It was my pleasure to meet Mark at ELTA when we visited in 2016. Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Dennis as he wasn't there when we were. Prayers to family and friends.
  19. Oh no, I'm just seeing this now. Missed it here and don't do FB.

    So very sorry to hear about Dennis' passing. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

    I hope Mark is improving and doing ok. I can't imagine how he's feeling emotionally and physically. Hang in there brother, stay strong.
