We've lost a good friend.
My good Friend Ron Shurkus passed away today after a year long fight with Asbestos Cancer. Last March he was given 3 months to live, and lasted a year. He was able to drive and enjoy his 64 Olds, drag race it, and even won 1st place at a car show.
He will be missed a bunch by me and a lot more folks. Great guy.
Ron founded Ye Olde Speed n Sport in Connecticut back in the 80s and sold it around 1991 and moved here to Anderson, SC. I will continue to keep his memory and old speed shop name alive here.
