So far this year I have put about 11,000 miles on my Dodge Challenger project that took almost 4 years to restore. I love driving it. This project is by far one of the coolest things I have ever achieved in my life. Everyone that looks at it is amazed at the condition its in. By far the most noticeable part about the car is the paint job. The paint shines like glass. The car was painted in my garage by a good friend and coworker of mine by the name of JD Loring. He coached me on the process to creating a great paint job. His energy and enthusiasm was unmatched and priceless to me. We had a lot of fun with the paint process and the project as a whole. Today is a very sad day. Yesterday JD decided to end his life by committing suicide. JD was married and has a son who recently graduated from high school. He was a great man. I have known JD for many years and always loved his enthusiasm and energy at work and play. All of my customers loved the guy and thought he was the best at what he did working the counter for the F.W. Webb company in Lebanon, NH. This is a shock to many, many people who knew JD. He will be missed very much. I will think of him every time I take my car for a ride. A lot of people ask me if I have “named” my car yet and my answer has always been “nope”. As a tribute to one of the greatest, heartwarming, energetic, caring (I could go on forever) guys I have ever known, I am naming my Challenger project “JD”. God bless you buddy. You will be missed. May you rest in peace.
