Howard passed today, writer for Car Model magazine. Great person, great personality, and humor. One of the first HO slot car collectors and historians. Also a VW collector.

Very sad to hear that. I remember his column from Car Model, and still re-read those regularly. He was indeed one of the first to have an HO column, and seemed to be a very knowledgeable guy. 


RIP, Howard.

I'm sure Car Model readers will remember the heading for his column.
