I know this will probably get moved, but, he was involved with Model Cars and once co owned Prestige Hobbies in Buena Park 

Rest easy, Goose

Hey, we're getting to the age where the heros of our youth are going to be moving on. Nothing you can do about it. 

Thanks for all the good memories, Mongoose.

Sad to hear. His name will forever be remembered along with Garlits, Prudhomme, Sox &Martin, Jenkins, and the other kings of drag racing. The battles of "The Snake" & "The Mongoose" were quite memorable. RIP.

Very sad to hear. His rivalry with Prudhomme in the 70s was fuel for the imagination. I loved that stuff as a kid. Thanks for the memories, Tom. R.I.P.

You said exactly what I wanted to say Snake. Even if there is nothing I can do about it. It still makes me sad.
