I have yet to talk to Nancy since last week. Anyone that can be there is most welcomed. This was a big part of his life, and I'm sure he would like as many friends on here that can be there. Thank you all for the condolences.

Long before this website began I was chatting with J.D. on Ls1tech.com around 2009 I think. He knew I had a 01 Intimidator and asked if I bought it at Berger Chevrolet. I informed him that only Dale Earnhardt Chevy in Newton, NC sold them brand new in 2001.

He replied "Oh I didn't know that but now I do." ... :D. And thus began our mutual admiration towards each other. Since then we emailed and chatted via phone many times on a wide range of subjects and his knowledge always kept me on my toes.

And believe it or not, I was the guy that suggested one of his neon clocks with a numbered Intimidator on it. And Yes, mine is Very Kool! :icon-mrgreen:

Mr. Smith,

I was so saddened to hear of the death of JD. He and I spoke several times when I was trying to get myself registered on the forum. I never finished the best I recall.

He had told me that the only way I could see the For Sale section was to be a verified, registered GMMG owner, etc. In looking at my old email he mentioned that we were to contact you to get our Blackbird (side) emblems. My car was delivered without them and Matt as well as the office staff there at GMMG never got them to me. As well as my mats. We all discovered later what was going on over there. I wish things could have gotten better for Matt. Do you ever hear from him?

Please let me know what I need to do, now that I have a little memory, as far as possible getting any of the parts that my CETA Blackbird was/is missing.

Thank you for the registry and supporting our cause,
David

I met JD a couple of times at CSF and talked to him several times on the phone. He would ask me questions about many of the trips I made to Berger Chevrolet when the Berger SS, ZL1,Hot Rod Camaro and Dick Harrell Camaros were being built. I was lucky enough to drive many of these nice Berger cars. JD owned some nice ones. May JD rest in peace. Prayers to his family. Greg Jackson

Its funny..I was going to have you get in touch with JD on the GMMG registry about my car...then I received this email.

This guy knew everything about the HRE cars by GMMG. Chuck

JD was a good man and even though I had never met him he spoke as a honest and good man. God be with you JD,

I don't know JD's family but please give them my condolences and regards when you are there. JD was so helpful to me and generous with his time when I was getting started with GMMGs.
