Unhappy Re: Gregg Luneack

I got up, logged on, then saw the news about the loss of our friend,Gregg Luneack. Here was a man that not only knew how to do outstandingly excellent machine work, but knew how to be a friend. Tony Janes introduced him to me when I needed a 327 block straightened out, so we made the 97 mile trip to Vista and dropped it off. We had lunch with him and his wife, and they were the two most delightful people you could ever hope to meet. He honed, line honed, and decked four or five of my 327's, and there was something about both the block hone and the ring package that he sold us that made those engines pretty special. Some engines, as you assemble them, feel different because they just feel right. They fire up and sound right, they go down the track just right, and they hold up real well. I saw the difference in his work immediately. He just could make stuff work. He also was the type of guy that would stop to talk and share whatever he felt that you need to know. He also became a real friend. He genuinely liked people, and he always had a group visiting him at his trailer. The most fun thing to watch was the maroon'65 Chevy Nova wagon with its two foot wheels up launches. It didn't matter if it was a Nova, a Chrysler, or a Camaro, he made it work. He definitely understood the law of physics pertinent to race cars and how to get them to leave, run, and drive well. It won't be the same around here without him. Please remember his wife at this time as well.
