This is truly sad news. I was under the impression he was doing better, but I guess not. He leaves behind a legacy in the perfomance engine and tuning world and a hole that may never be mended. He was a legend, one of a kind. In TV interviews about his latest creations you could see pure excitement in his expressions. He was a man who loved what he did and did it better than anyone else.
He will be sorely missed, especially by those of us into GM performance cars.
I would imagine Car and Driver magazine will do a story on John. C&D tested so
many of his supercars over the years, always with spectacular results. Let's hope
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering continues to prosper, it would be a fitting
tribute to him.
