    So very sorry to hear this. I got to meet Bud and Blackdog on their way thru Missouri on year . We had a great time eating lunch at a local restaurant and enjoy talking about our cars. His "Rare" and my
    81 are the same color and I had just gotten mine repainted and he was on the fence about redoing "Rare" We discussed the pros and cons as if we had known each other for years.
    I was also at the Corvette Museum when he got to set the L81 Vette Registry brick. That was a big day for him. We had a great time that weekend as well.
    If you ever got the chance to meet Bud you knew how great of a guy he was. I for one am glad I got the chance!

    Rest in Peace Bud.

    My friend Bud will always be Yoda to me: wise, possessing an inner strength, loyal and always quick with the right thing to say in any situation. From his brandishing of his online light saber to showing me "the hockey hand shake," from listening to his life experiences to watching him get up on stage in Colorado Springs to perform as one of "The Supremes," he was first rate. He loved Corvettes, and loved Corvette people. My prayers go out to Nanc, his wife, and all his family.

    Yoda, you are one with the force now. And you will be forever missed.

    I did not know Bud personally, but I remembered the tag Yoda on many of his posts when I got the note of his passing. Sorry to hear another vet has passed. My prayers will be with his family.

    Well, Like I generally say at times like this, we will certainly miss Bud for so many, many reasons. But on the other hand, it is so nice to see some Corvette guys, that haven't been on here for a while. Patrick, Lou (Rowdy) and Bill to name just a few. We all hope that you will not be strangers, please come by and visit us more often.

    I didn't really know him on a personal level, but I always enjoyed reading his posts. Go with God Bud!

    (I first apologize for my poor english)

    This is a great shock.

    Back in 2001, Bud gave me many advices when I got my 81' Vette.
    I was quite alone in France trying to keep my Vette in its best condition and he was the light that helped me.

    As any fan of the StarWars saga, I didn't believe that Yoda could die... until it happened.

    But he is still there, in all of our hearts.

    :G So, so sorry to hear about Yoda. . . . . Thoughts and prayers to the family.

    First of all thanks for letting us know about Buds (Yoda) passing Rob, I for one really appreciate it. Rob you're a class act that is for sure, one of the reasons CAC is the best web site on the www. I think Al Gore is still trying to take credit for it though Yoda was as much a part of it as anyone and was one of the staples of the group that is for sure. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Bud is now driving on those streets paved with gold, while GOD and HIS Staff is saying "slow down Yoda" and keep those tire marksoff my street I say to Bud personally thank you for your service to this great country my brother in arms, welcome home again to your final resting place. I enjoyed you for quite a few years on Corvette Action Center routinely. Now my brother may you rest in peace and dwell in the house of our Lord and Savior Forevermore! May the force be with you my Man

    It's just weird to hear this. Bud was the guy that was always around and in his way the force behind the L81 section. There're people that come and go that you don't even notice, others you think will live forever. Everybody has this or her time but it still is an unpleasant surprice. Rest in peace But, we'll remember you!

    Greetings Peter
