Brian, I purchased the motor from your cruiser and your spirit kept me safe while owning the vehicle and I believed you saved my life several times from several near misses, keeping me from losing control of the car and even delaying the fire that finally totaled the car. I never knew you while you were alive but your spirit did it's job and saved me to continue to live my life, and with that I say thank you.
