Unhappy Goodby Erik

I worked for Saab-Scania back in the early 70's and was fortunate to met Erik on 2 occasions. The 1st time was during the Baja 500. He was driving a race prepped 96. I enjoyed watching him thrash the car through the Baja terrain.
The 2nd time we met I had the pleasure to be his chauffeur. My boss at the time told me not to let Erik drive,because he drove in traffic just like he did on a rally. I remember picking him up @ LAX. I was drive a 95 wagon at the time and when he got in the car he was so big his right shoulder was hitting the door and he was hanging off the seat on my side. It was fun to her him tell stories about some of the rally's he'd done. We spent a couple of hours bending our elbows at a local watering hole that night.
We'll miss him.
