Rest in Peace, Chic Vandagriff
« on: July 30, 2011, 05:08:00 AM »
Chic Vandagriff passed away yesterday, and a little bit more on his life has been posted here

Though most folks know Chic Vandagriff better for his efforts with small production sports cars, Can-Am stuff, and his dealership, Hollywood Sport Cars... He did so much more for road racing in North America.

Perhaps most pertinent to the interests on this forum, Chic provided three soon to be factory Trans-Am drivers with very high quality early rides.  Those Trans-Am drivers are Ronnie Bucknum, Jerry Titus and Jim Adams (some time Shelby T/A driver).

Thankfully, Chic's knowledge and passion for the sport lives on in his son, Cris Vandagriff (President, HMSA).

Chad, that is a sad thing to hear and my condolences go out to the Vandagriff family. Chic certainly did a lot for the sport and was a good man. He will be missed.

That is very sad news indeed. Chic Vandagriff and his family were heavily involved with so many very notable and sucessful race endevours.
My condolences to his family.

Bruce.
