Or the day I bought the last mk3 off the line in canada he didn't believe me but I showed him. He took a ferry over just to see me having a beer looking at my wonderful buy that he was so jealous of. He did hold the Canadian record of highest hp supra 780 back in 2005.

I'm sorry for your loss, our loss, perhaps. What was his nickname here, "Don from Vancover" doesn't seem to find it. I'd like to look over his posts and see if I remember him. I've been here for years, but I do come and go, and I know so few names. Geez. I'm an old man... and crying.

Sorry to hear about that. I bought some Supra parts from him 2 years ago for my build and he was a great person to do business with. RIP

Wow, sad news. I think I bought a part or two from him over the years. I definitely recognize the screen name.

@NashMan thank you for letting us know and I'm sorry for your loss. If there's anything we can do, please let us know.

Oh man, that's some sad news. Don was a standup dude and was always around to help out. I've got pretty fond memories of him during PacNW, or the supra island mini meets. RIP buddy :(

Oh shit... This is horrible news. I remember I met Don I believe when I was in van way back in like 06 or 07. I was going to buy some 92 shadow grey interior off him too. That's so sad!! How old was he? Was it a heart attack?

Sorry to hear this...
