JohnZ, say it ain't so?
« on: December 10, 2016, 03:29:53 AM »
Our beloved JohnZ regretfully, has decided to sell his car for, what I understand, health reasons. So sad. https://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/cto/5908371665.html

wow..  What a great car for someone!   I just forwarded the link to an old friend of mine, who had one like it in the '70's... (we met thru our Z28's).. :)   I'd love to see him get it.

How sad. A lot of people seem to die around the holidays. I am praying for you John and family. I publicly want to thank John, again, for all i (we) have benefitted from John's experience and knowledge. I thank God everyday for the great folks He has put in my path and how I have learned and benefited from these relationships.

Very sad to see this thread. Had hoped that no news was good news after his recent hospital stay this fall. Miracles do happen so praying for his health and keeping his family and friends here and over at Team Camaro in my heart.

Sad to hear this news. Believe I actually met John and his Camaro years ago at the Superfest when I lived in Michigan. Talked his ear off for awhile about his car and where I could get a CRG hat like the one he was wearing but told me they weren't for sale. Great guy who was very knowledgeable and loved Camaros! My thoughts are with you John, Godspeed friend.

Actually, the hat never fit his noggin, so he always had it in the windshield. Daniel and I were parked next to him. :)
