Sadly my brother and a long time member and moderator here, Flateric, passed away last month.

It looks like he hasn't been very active here in the last couple years, but maybe some people still remember him. One thing he loved more than just about anything was working on his car. It has fallen to me to dispose of some of his assets, and I know he would prefer his car sold to someone who would take care of it.

If any one knows of someone local who would be interested in this project, please let me know.

Sorry to hear that. It’s never easy to lose a loved one and for this community it sucks losing one of the old school guys.

Sorry to hear, but thank you for letting us know. I remember his user name from way back. He probably contributed to my obsession with these cars early on.

Please reach out to the community here if there's anything we can do for you to help out with anything.

Thank-you.

The only help I can think to ask for right now is to find a good home for his car (locally).

I'm sure there are a bunch of folks up there that are capable and excited at that idea. Traffic is a little slower these days, but someone around here will hopefully help out. It's neat you're concerned with that. I'd like to think he'd be pretty psyched you were taking the time to find it a home since he was so passionate about it.

Just saw this now. Unbelievable. I spent a couple of years hanging out in his garage and built his bottom end among other pieces on his car. :( I knew he was having some trouble, but my life has been busy and I moved up to Edmonton so most of our conversations were on Facebook as of late.

Condolences man, I'm at a loss for words. :(

I remember seeing that name during the years of browsing through SM. Would his car happen to be a red 89+?

I am truly sorry for your loss, my condolences. RIP.

Very Saddened to hear about this.

I was actually thinking about him last week. I had a few conversations with him over the last couple years.

I feel as I have also lost a brother.
