Jake (Richard Williams) was a lurker on several C**** related sites. He probably had less than 100 posts on all the forums when he passed away in late 2010.
He loved cars and purchased a used Mk2 from somebody in FL as I recall. I've never seen that car but I will try to post a picture if I can find one.
The username had something to do with the nose art from one of Jakes planes. He was a WWII vet and flew many awesome airplanes for the Army and Air Force. I know he flew the P51, P47, P80, F86, F100, F105, and the F4.
Jake was nearly 40 years my senior but he seemed like a big brother. I met him at my flight school graduation (US Army), his son is my best friend. Our dads became great friends too and had much in common. My dad is also a WWII vet.
I think of Jake each time I push a throttle forward to go fly and whenever I work on my hot rod. He served his country during WWII, Korea, and also Vietnam. God Bless the "Greatest Generation".
