Pete,

This is heartbreaking. I know how close you two were and can see why. Ab was a true gentleman and a great asset to the 356 world and is already missed!

RIP Ab,

We used to argue about technical details. Ab, Wish you were still here to keep that up. Glad I was able to see him at the last fall swap meet at Ski Roundtop.
