    Brian Scott aka Scott Performance wire

    Just got the sad news from his son Evan, a once Midshipman that I sponsored at Brian's request. Brian was a long time Studebaker guy that made wire for NASCAR and custom sets for Studebakers. He saved me at a International meet when N8 and I burned up a wiring harness on my GT by giving us full use of his shop.

    That is so sad to hear, especially when it is someone younger.
    I had a pre-arranged visit with Brian at his shop/factory in North Carolina. He was a nice guy and very hospitable. We spent part of the afternoon talking about his business and Studebakers. I believe that he had a Studebaker "ear-marked" for each of his children.

    Unhappy

    Man-o-man... This hurts... Condolences to the family.

    I used to regularly stop by Brian's shop in Mooresville and 'chat'... Usually with a carried in lunch of some Matt's Chicago style hot dogs, or something.
    Being frugal, I used to laugh at his using a long rubber band to hold his cell phone to his head so he could build wires while on the phone.
    We talked mostly about his new love for ballroom dancing, and how it brought some new companionship his way.
    He sold me a JTS engine he had been saving for a project... Now that has more interest for me to get it put back together.

    Brian also built me up a custom set of wires for 'The Black Car'...
    When it came to putting the custom logo ends on, he asked me what name or logo I wanted on them.
    I told Brian... I want your logo on the wires... Nobody else.
    Now... These too will carry more meaning for me...

    Gonna miss that guy.....
