Sorry to hear that. Never met him but bought and sold parts and corresponded with him many times over the years.

Man, he was a good dude. Helped me out a few times when he really didn't have to.

RIP Todd.

So sorry to hear this, he was a solid guy and a real asset to the Datsun world. I was literally planning to call him tomorrow for Mikuni jets.
Condolences to Suzie.

Was Todd not a young guy? I know he's been into Datsuns for years.

My condolences to his family and friends. A loss to the community for sure.

This just bums me out. Todd was such a good guy even though I've only met him twice it was like I've known him all my life.

Have a Great Ride Todd...

There will be no formal service for Todd. Todd wasn't the kind of guy that would want a room full of people standing around crying over him. I think he would rather be remembered as a helpful voice on the phone or the smiling guy at the race track on his jacked up golf cart with a beer in one hand and a half chewed cigar in the other.

God speed Big man !

MIke (Stonebridge20) contacted me yesterday to fill me in on Todd's passing. This came as a huge shock.

Todd and I met back in the '80's when he and his wife Suzie were driver/co-driver racing a 510 in SCCA ProRally. Todd purchased a used Datsun Comp rally suspension package from me.

I had the parts stashed away in the garage of a house I was fixing up in Gilmanton, NH. The unoccupied house was on a woods road 1/4 mile back from the "main" road which was gravel. When we arrived there I had forgotten my key and had to crawl thru the garage window to hand parts out to him.

He would always comment on that day saying it reminded him of the movie Deliverance as we drove out into the woods to get to the house.

I met Todd many years ago at Summit Point.

He was a great guy and a true contributor to the Datsun community.

My condolences to Suzie and the rest of his family.

RIP my friend. You will be missed.
Enjoy The Ride!

Really sad to hear this. Todd was always very helpful and patient with any Mikuni problems or questions that I had. He will be missed.

Very sad, I also never met him in person, just a patron. As a new Mukuni 'tuner' his guidance, patience and follow-up were much appreciated. Best wishes to his wife, family and those who knew him in this family.
