Sad. A great car/racing person.
I just learned through a newsletter that Martin Swig, creator of the California Mille and a major mover in California classic cars has died. He was one of the good guys. I only met him once, in 2000 I think, when he came to the tiny island I lived on then to view the 1923 Vauxhall I had for sale. when he called two weeks later to say he would take it I had sold it to somebody else an hour earlier. But I remember Martin Swig as a gentleman and a real enthusiast RIP.

It's said there are certain experiences, events, cars, etc. that one should not deny oneself before death. That credo should probably include meeting certain people. Martin Swig was most definitely one of those people.
Here is a lovely interview from last year. Highly recommended.
