Everyone....
         It is my sad duty to inform you all that my old friend and owner of our Simca Comp Coupe, Jay Storer, passed away on Saturday, June 3rd. He had been suffering from Lewys Body Dementia for the past 4 1/2 years, and ,after celebrating his 70th Birthday in April, went down hill quite rapidly. We ran that car in the late `80s and early 90s, set records at El Mirage in `89 and Bonneville in `91. Jay was well known as a Magazine writer and Freelancer, from his days at the Petersen Book division to his Ad Agency for Hot Rod companies, and his work as a freelance journalist for Street Rodder, Rodders Journal and others.
   There will be a Celebration of Life at some point in the next few months. I will miss Jay dearly. Our friendship spanned 30 years, and he helped me more than he will ever know. Rest in Peace, old friend....

Sorry to hear House.  The Simca was iconic of that era of dry lakes racing IMO.

Very sorry to hear, Paul.
Jay and you were among the first people I "bonded with" at the beginning of my Land Speed racing "career."
R.I.P., Jay.
