  1. Dave was true blue Ford guy. He once told me he had Ford blue blood in his veins. I remember when he bought his 1969 Boss 302 cougar. Although we have not seen each other for years, I will always remember Dave as a good friend. Until we meet again my friend.

  2. Sorry to hear that David has died, he was always a neat person to talk too.
    May he rest in peace.
