Dave was a great guy, boss and friend. I had the honor to work with him in his last year. Dave was very smart with a massively diverse knowledge. He literally knew a little about everything and a lot about a lot of things.

He taught me to be innovative and try new methods when working with the old trucks and body work. He'd say to not worry about messing it up, "it's only metal and we can fix it".

I miss him, but know he's in a good place now. It really made my day to find this post while I was researching. It shows the impact he made in the vintage auto forums.

Rest in Peace brother Dave

I sure hope I can complete my disc brake install smile
Dave was wonderful explaining things. He had to be a good person.

Savannah54,

I use to work for Dave at The Hollister Road Co. While I didn't work with the disc brake conversions, my work mate did and he can answer any questions you might have. Let me know and I can get you in touch with him.

Will anyone carry them on? Dave did a lot of work on them and I’d like to get one. Even if it were to buy the plans and have some cut. Maybe someone would be willing to buy out the family. I know a few folks...
