I just heard from a friend that my local Italian Car guy Tino Agafors died suddenly Sunday. Those of you who have been to Xweb events at my house in Olympia may remember him as an older, very enthusiastic Fiat mechanic with a thick Italian accent who lived down the road a couple of miles. He would sometimes drop in after seeing many X1/9 and other cars drive past his place.
We often talked when we ran into each other at the local gas station, which was just down the road from his house/shop. He thought his collection of rusting cars and parts was quite valuable. He was an avid F-1 and rally racing enthusiast as well.
