I'm sure that I was the last person to complete a build with Paul. I'm thankful for the opportunity to have worked with Paul and get to know him. I truly appreciated the experience.

He is one of the hardest working people I've met. If I can be half as enthusiastic and active in life as Paul I'll consider myself lucky.

Paul liked to help others, he enjoyed teaching and passing on his trades and he was always ambitious looking for the next adventure.

If you knew Paul, you were lucky to have known him. I know I was.

R.I.P Paul. I know you your covered in grease and working on a project somewhere.

Never met him. But I know he was a 'Regular' on this forum with over 1200 posts. I kinda feel like 'Family' with everyone that posts here. Ya'll that knew him speak Volumes on the kinda gut he really was. And because of that, I will miss him also. Kinda brings up reality and slaps you in the face..sad smiley

Paul really enjoyed playing DJ at the Corvair events. He had the touch for 4 speed transmissions and had been a great friend to my entire family. I think he also liked sweet talking the ladies! thumbs up He will be missed for sure.

If I'm thinking of the right guy, I liked the way he put together good running engines for sale by only fixing what he thought was wrong to keep the price down. He seemed like a hale fellow well met with good common sense.

I didn't know Mr Kehler, but from the responses here on the forum, it was my loss!

My prayers are for the family, at this difficult time.
