Goodbye skrach
« on: December 20, 2017, 05:57:06 PM »
I was in China last week and got a call from Mike of Boss Pinto fame. It was 3 am there but he needed to talk. It turned out that a mutual friend Douglas Johnson, (skrach here on Ford Pinto.com) had passed away about a year ago. We had been emailing him regularly but we simply did not have any way to get a hold of him other than email and cell. Mike ran into a friend that he and Doug shared and that was when the news was learned. He was a little younger than me when he went to bed next to his wife and simply did not wake up the following morning. He was 32.

In memory, RIP Skrach
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?
