    He will be missed. He was a big help to myself and the Lincoln community. I've gotten parts and great advice and help from him always, it would have been nice to meet him other than through the forums.

    Very sad news. Doug was one of the most knowledgeable and smartest guys on the forum, and had one of the cleanest, quickest, n/a cars to prove it. You helped so many people on this forum, and will never be forgotten. Thank you for everything.

    Rest In Paradise Doug.

    He'll be missed around here for sure. R.I.P. Doug.

    We should all put some stainless allen-hex bolts on whatever project we're in the middle of working on, on our Marks in his honor.

    So sad. I read this about a week ago and have been at at a loss of words ever since. My condolences to friends and family. Sadly I never had the pleasure of meeting him. Such a loss to us all.

    Wow. Really sad to see Doug go.... We've spent countless hours in his garage working on my car, he custom built my 4.10 true trac rear with a sick list of parts we put together, 4" Driveshaft, new axles..saw him not that long ago when he let me use his lift and I rolled my fenders there. Good guy, hell we even drag raced a few times together. Awful loss as a personal friend and he was a huge help to the Lincoln Community. Sad, sad day. My prayers to you and your family. You are greatly missed.

    He worked on my car for 2 months which he named the rust bucket. That car was smooth and tight after I took it back. There wasnt one question I asked about my Mark that he didnt know the answer. Not to mention a photo CD he made documenting all the work. He reinforced to me you do the job right or dont do it at all. One hell of a guy, I can't believe hes gone.
