Default Lost member. RIP mx594m.

We lost an active mt.net member and miata enthuziast last night. Roy was riding shotgun in his own turboed miata when it left the road and he passed due to head trauma.

Local story on the incident is here:
Knox man dead following car crash on 'The Dragon' Knoxville News Sentinel

Please leave your condolences for Roy here.

*sadkitty*

At least he was in his pride and joy car, better than in a nursing home.

While we all enjoy our cars and our lives, one can quickly end the other. Rest in peace good sir.

If anyone in the Knoxville area has his wife's or families contact and could get it to me it would be greatly appreciated. I would like to get a card sent out from the mt.net community.

Lars,
I will forward Roy's mailing address to Scott's email (I'm not sure I have your email address Lars).

Damn, what a bummer. We all know the consequences, and I'm sure he did too. Glad the young girl lived at least.

RIP.

Looking at his signature, it looks like he had quite the car:

94M, 9:1, 84 mm, H-rods, VVT head, JDM intake, FM crossflow, BEGI reroute, 525 cc, f.rail, f.pump, ACT 6-puck, MSPNP1+VCM, LS2, AEM W/B & boost, FCM 400/275 Bilsteins, 27 mm tubular, 6ULs 15x8, Toyo R1R, HDDD, BEGi 2860, 3" duals - 282hp/259tq [mustang dyno]

I wonder what his relation to the younger girl was, and why she was driving?

I hope this is not disrespectful, if it is definitely remove the image. but..



Such a sad day. I found mr sheely on facebook and the guy lived and breathed miatas, I spend all day every day on this board and I don't think I come close to him as far as the hobby goes. He will be missed.

Damn. That second article was paywalled, but the first few sentences said the car went down a 30 foot embankment before hitting the tree.

I hate hearing about anybody leaving us. Hopefully it was quick and painless for him. That does look like one hell of a wreck.

Also, looks like he was a Vietnam Veteran, going by his tag.

The link I posted was for Local 8 Now - Home - News Sports Weather. If you look on their front page you should be able to find a non-paywall link to it.
