Concours de Elegance America held a brief tribute for Chris today at the show. Rather than a moment of silence, the organizer fittingly deemed that engines from cars on the show field should start and rev for a minute, or so. His wife Sonia and his two daughters were there with Chris’ GT. On queue, Sonia fired up their GT and revived it right along with the others! I think Chris would have liked that!
Cool tribute !!.. Thanks for posting

I am very sad for the lost of such a talented and overall great person he will be greatly missed by everyone he touched. It was very nice seeing him last year at Monterey Car week. Deepest condolences go out to his wife and entire family sorry for your loss.
