Sad...what a neat guy. Rarely got to chat with him, but he always remembered / recognized us every time we showed our faces at one of his events. He will be missed!

John was a rarity. Class and substance in an age where there is little. A person who pursued his love of Porsches beyond anything we will ever see again. We imported the first street legal 959. His faith in me was beyond reproach. It saddens me no end to think he is gone. Somewhere out there he is giving Butzi, Ferry, and Ferdinand a few pointers.

wow this is shocking news to me, I lost touch with Eric over the years but he always spoke highly of Mr. Dixon. He was a great man and I will always remember his generosity to the children's hospital and veterans.

RIP
