Wow... thanks for this post.

You're welcome Polar Bear! Obviously you knew Torch, I was just reading posts and not yet a member of the forum when he passed, but we all share a fondness for Corvettes, so we know something about each other. From what I can tell Don was quite a guy, one I would have been privileged to know better had I the chance.

Big lesson learned from Torch: I've been waiting for the right financial timing to purchase my Corvette, well screw that! I'm going to figure out how to make it happen NOW. Like I said in my previous post, I just turned 54 and Torch was only 60 when we lost him...so now is the time to make the Vette a reality and not just a dream I read and write about on a forum.

I'm only an hour from the Museum in BG, so I visit several times each year...I always stop by Torch's beautiful bench for a few words before I depart. I'll give him a shout out from Polar Bear next time I'm there!

Hard to believe it's been over 5 years. Seems like yesterday.

Was at the museum yesterday and stopped by his bench. Very sad when someone goes way before their time.
