My condolences to his family and close friends. Paul was a great Corvair Enthusiast and a life-long car guy - "all in"! An amazing mechanic with an eye for detail and style.
I got to meet him a few times and enjoyed the time spent completely. He was always ready, willing and able to help.

We are missing you already, Paul...

I am very sorry to hear that he has passed. I knew that he had been struggling with a recurrence of throat cancer and I have not heard back from him last time that I inquired. RIP Paul Kehler, you were always a great friend and an invaluable Corvair resource that will be sorely missed by many people.

Very sad news. His posts were always helpful. I dont believe we ever met in person, but we traded parts and he was always wonderful to deal with. RIP.
