Doug was a good friend and mentor. By mentor I mean with classic cars. When he found out my wife was interested in 1958 Chev. Impalas he went on a search and found her the "Peggy Sue" car in Palm Springs. When I showed an interest in Corvettes he found me a 1958 Vet in Canada. I will miss our conversations Doug.
