Dave was a great guy and I am heart broken to hear this. When I visited him in 2007 for the Midwest Pinto meet, he opened his home to us and let me drive his beloved 79 Pinto sedan. For those that do not know, this is a NEW car. 301 miles when I saw it. As I was born in 1980, I had never had the chance to smell what a new Pinto smelled like (pretty cheap really, no surprise there). More importantly, I had never driven one. He handed me the keys and we took it for a one mile loop. I will never forget that drive. I tell people about it all the time, that I got to drive a new Pinto. I wish I could repay the kindness.

Guys and Gals...

Received a call from Heather (Dave's daughter) tonight letting me know that Dave had passed away this last Saturday Morning after a long battle with cancer. I am saddened to the core, Dave Herbeck was very dear to me as he is to many of us... This is a loss for his family, his friends and the PCCA...

Most of you may not know that I went and visited Dave last year after his first surgery and spent some time with him and CJ. I spent time admiring his wonderful garage, Pintos, meeting his Church family, enjoying seeing him play drums during morning worship and spending some quality time together working on his cars and having a beer together. Over the 12 years I have known Dave, all the car shows we attended together, just dropping by his house when I was traveling thought his area with the family, emails and phone calls- I can honestly say he is one of the best men I have ever had the pleasure to know.

God bless you CJ, He loved you very much and spoke of you and his kids at length. We morn with you- standing beside you with all of the great friends Dave easily gathered during his time with us. He is our heritage, our founder, and our friend. You and your family will always be a part of what Dave has created here. We thank you immensely for sharing him with us and entertaining his hobby so we could enjoy and know him. You were there at the many car shows and meets, hosting events in your home, on your property, or traveling with him across this great country. He was so blessed to have you by his side... We celebrate his life with you.

PCCA Gang- I'm going to share moments with additional posts in this thread to celebrate his life. I encourage everyone to do the same as you can. I know this will help me personally to try and express what I can't yet grasp at this moment but I'm sure will become more clear as we all go down this road together.

Dave, you are my friend- always...

Dave with Brad winning an award for 'Geraldine' at Knott's Berry Farm show in California- One of the first car shows we attended together. I got to meet the lady who sold the car to Dave- he invited her out to show how he was keeping her car in pristine condition. She was so happy to see Dave and her old car, he really made her feel important introducing her to everyone... You can see the hats and t-shirts (Thanks Frank) we just had minted right before the car show...

Stopped by Dave's house while on a family vacation on our way to Yellowstone. I altered our trip just so we could swing by and see Dave...

Here is a fun one. Dave and CJ hosted another Pinto Meet but this one was on their property they were going to build on. He had a tent setup, we made homemade ice cream, awards, he setup pictures taking with a model and our cars... He grilled burger for us! what a great time!

Here is one from the Stampede to Ford- Dave had just pulled 'Jade' from the trailer and was staging the stuffed pony for all of us- Several of the guys had heard stories and seen pictures about the most famous Pinto Dave owned but had never see it... revealing it and everyone went hooo and ahhh... this car is still known as the most original Pinto that the club knows to exist- less than 600 actual miles on her...

Dave was a great guy. He called me when he was first diagnosed and we talked for a long time. He wanted to let me know that even though he was very upset at the news he wanted to make every day count. He really loved the Pinto Group and his cars and was really a great guy.  I am convinced that Dave is  now enjoying Heaven with his Heavenly Father. We will all miss you Dave. Until we meet again......... .....

Never met Dave, but was impressed with his commitment to the marque and his decorum while helping build this site. We should all be so fortunate to have the respect and legacy that he left us with.
 
My Sincerest condolences to your family.... Rest In Peace.. We won't forget..

Yes, it is possible to study and become a master of Pintosophy.. Not a religion , nothing less than a life quest for non conformity and rational thought. What Horse did you ride in on?

I had a similar communication with Dave soon after his diagnosis and, like you, I am convinced he is in Heaven.  He was a man of great faith.  I only had the opportunity to meet him in person once (Tulsa, OK in 2008) but after spending five minutes with him, he felt like an old friend.  The world will be a little sadder place without him in it.  My sincerest condolences to his entire family.  Rest in peace, Dave.

sad to see the news of Dave's passing. I met him on the forums back when I was just getting my start in the online community and started my crazy pinto obsession. I was there for that 1st Central Pinto meet back on 2007, got to see the 500 mile original pinto for the 1st time. What a treat. It's people like Dave that have helped make the "Pinto thing" enjoyable for me. I was glad to see him again in 2014 for the Stampede in Dearborn. Think I even joked with him a bit about it was all his fault getting me started on the road trips to various Pinto gatherings with that 1st invite in 2007. I still treasure and recall how much fun that 1st Pinto road trip was.... thanks for the memories Dave.

The first time my family met Dave was at Carlisle for the 2nd pinto meet. It was a pleasure to meet him and his family. I remember his wife and children went to Hershey park while he stayed at the show. On Sunday morning he was the first to tell us we had won an award.

The first time I met Dave was also at the 2nd FPCC meet in Carlisle PA. Sadly, The last time I talked to Dave was in Detroit with the Pinto Stampede. He shared his knowledge with me of his Diesel Pinto build as I shared interest in building one. Dave was a awesome guy and I feel honored to have met him.

I haven't been on here in a while. But I to was sad to hear of Daves passing. We had many great conversations. My wife Roni and I spent time with him and CJ in 07 and 08 at the Tulsa shows. He was a great guy.
