For any of you working on or seeking parts and or information for The Borg-Warner R-10 and R-11 Overdrive, you have probably heard or or spoken with Randy Rundle of Fifth Avenue Antique Auto Parts. Randy left this world in February 2021 and along with him, a treasure chest of information. Fifth Avenue will continue but all of us keep some pieces of information in our heads and when we go, it goes. Rest in Peace Randy, shift into overdrive and enjoy the trip! frown

Wow. Another one of the greats/stalwarts of our hobby. I always enjoyed talking to Randy -- He has been a tremendous source of help and advice over the years and was crucial to getting our Tech Tip library started years ago. The info he sent me to use was really amazing. A lot of it is still in our Tech Tips.

A good man who was generous with his wisdom and knowledge. He was one of the real experts who helped set the info sharing tone of

He was a rare friend of this hobby and upon who's shoulders we all stand.

Farewell Randy and thank you.

I've heard the best one can say about a guy is that he was "a good man". Indeed Randy was and will be missed.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
