"I knew Andre when he lived in Seal Beach,
CA in the 60's. He was great with all of us kids.
He worked for Shelby at the time and
would let us drive the GTs and Mustang high performance vehicles that he
would bring home.
I remember when he built 'The Front Runner.'
Andre was a great guy!

"Andre inspired a bunch of us young Seal
Beach surfers and taught us how to "turn a wrench." (AND how to drive really
I felt really comfortable when I bought
my '85 5-0 Mustang convertible and cruised across Nevada Highways
to Vegas at an honest 130 MPH, knowing how to correct steering and just
have fun with the speed. All thanks to Andre."
