    News of Martin Swig

    Who has passed away, alright so I've never heard of the man but it sounds like he was very influential in California and beyond, maybe some of you folks knew him?

    Thanks! - I received an email from a friend - Wow!
    I just read it,& I'm in shock.He's one of the people who'd
    I thought would be around FOREVER.
    He put on the California Mille,a 1000 mile tour of
    California roads.They stayed here in Eureka many times - we
    got to see INCREDIBLE cars in our own backyard.I never got to
    thank him for doing that.
    A few years back,I took our Cortina MKIII to meet
    the Mille group for lunch in Ferndale,CA.Martin told me that
    he remembered them from his time in Europe.Made my day!
    I had a few breif discussions with him.Although
    he had a LOT more money than I ever will,he was still willing
    to take the time to talk with me.A true car guy.
    I will make another post about another great
    car person - we're losing some of the greats who "were there"
    when racing was great,& doing stuff that would probably get you
    put in jail today.
