I talked to Lonnie recently (due to covid, the last few years have been a blur and I can't put my finger on the last time we talked exactly). Many of you will know him, he was a moderator here in the very early days and an avid autocrosser. He had 17x12's on his car with 335's on the rear. I believe he wrote the sticky about fitting larger tires on these cars (or contributed much of it if it's not under his name). Anyway, the world has lost another member of this community and an all around car guy. We met at an autocross a lifetime ago, or so it seems. But my last chat with him was nice, it was good to catch up and things seemed to be going extremely well for them.


Posted tonight to Lonnie's facebook account I found the following:

QUOTE
My name is Heath Perrine, older brother of Breanna Bright (Perrine). Our lives were shattered in an instant; now, we're trying to pick up the pieces and put our lives back together without the most important pieces.
Loving parents, Breanna Bright (Perrine) and Lonnie Bright, were tragically taken from our lives due to a horrific car accident leaving behind their children.
Just before 4 PM on August 5th, a blue 2007 Nissan Titan pickup truck drifted left of the center line and struck my sister and brother-in-law's car.
My sister, Breanna Jeanne Bright (Perrine), who was 33 years old, passed away at the scene of the accident.
My brother-in-law, Lonnie Lee Bright, who was 43 years old, was airlifted to a local hospital, where he later passed away.
My niece, Journey Louise Bright, who is five years old, was airlifted to a local hospital, where she remains in a coma and in critical condition.
My nephew, Granger Lee Bright, who is three months old, was treated at a local hospital and taken in by loving family members.
Thankfully, my nephews, Carter, who is 18 and Hunter, who is 13, were not in the car at the time of the accident.
We are asking for any help you may be able to provide to help with funeral expenses and high medical costs, as there will be a very long road of recovery that my niece, Journey, will have to struggle through.
She has endured multiple surgeries and remains in around-the-clock care.
She is extremely strong and continues to fight an uphill battle as she heals from this horrific accident.
We ask that you please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers as we heal from this tragic event that took the lives of those we love way too soon.
Please share:

On behalf of the Bright & Perrine Family,
We want to thank you for all of your continued prayers and support.

Godspeed Lonnie and Breanna. My heart just breaks for the children. I really can't begin to imagine...

Lonnie was known as ESPcamaro, the wheel sticky is here:

Saw that on FB just now. That really sucks. We were basically complete opposites on everything except autocross but always had a good time.

Thatís kinda how we were. Even with the differences, I always enjoyed catching up with him.
