I am saddened to read of his passing.

I never had the pleasure of meeting the gentleman, but his print on our hobby is unmistakable.

I treasure his book for my mid-year and refer to it constantly.

Sad news. I just picked up his restoration and technical guide yesterday. He could really write some interesting stuff. His contributions will remain everlasting.

He did the same for me when I asked for help after first getting my car. I have always treasured his letter and information he sent back to me.
RIP Noland

I haven't been on this site in a while and just saw this. I'm so sad and my prayers go out to his family.

Noland lives on through the great body of information and unsurpased books he left us and future generations. How fortunate we are that he sacrificed his time to leave that legacy.
