I posted a thread inquiring about his whereabouts last year and no one was able to shed some light too.

It would be interesting to find out his D's current mileage is and any issues he's had.


Perhaps he is no longer driving his D and has moved on to other makes?

Which is a shame, I was really hoping to see if any issues came up with his car.

I've sent him PMs but no response so far.

Have to put out an APB!

I googled him and located him in Linkedn.

Appears he stopped doing construction work back in 2010, about the time he stopped posting.

Appears to have some sort of auto restoration business in Chatanooga, Tn. Trying to raise him.

If you google his forum user name you will see that he has done postings in the not too distant past on a duramax based forum.

He's got a link to his restorations website, Blast from the Past, in Tenessee. Email is there, address and phone number.

I sent him an email.
