This was touched by myself on a previous thread, but wanted to dedicate a thread myself to the legend. I was doing reasearch for another thread about Slammin Sammy Miller, A bulldozer driver here in NJ that just goes about his everyday life seldom referring to himself as "The fastest man alive" when i found a article from yesterday saying that he had passed away. I met him two years ago on a jobsite, and he was quickly anxious to tell me all his stories. He was a kind person, and we could have talked for days straight. He has held the quarter mile speed record for 27 years, and although his numbers still survive, he will be missed. Way to go Sammy! ;)
