Dave was a very dear friend of mine. I'm stunned and heartbroken. We met many years ago when my life was in turmoil but he helped me see that nothing is forever and life will get better. He was so right!!! He initially contacted me for help authenticating his Aztec Bronze 66 SS felt to be an original Dana car. We had an instant connection well beyond a passion for these cars. Many phone calls. Many emails. Many stories..... over many years!! He once flew me out to California to authenticate his Red 66 SS L-78 and to stay the week with him and his lovely wife "BIRD" and the hospitality he showed me was unreal. Stayed at his home. My choice of cars to drive, tours of his STUFF and meeting his friends along with so much laughter. I'll never forget our time together that week. My daughter was only 6 at that time, but he and Bird never stopped checking in on her .... She's 22 now!! A True Gentleman. A True Car Addict. A True Friend. He never stopped reminding me that Life is Short and to Enjoy everything!! I'm a better man for having known him. I will miss you my former Pennsylvania buddy but I'll never forget you. Sigh ~

Like with many who have already commented, Dave was a good friend of mine. I met him 22 years ago and remember wrenching on the BB Chevy engine he was preparing for his Forest Green 69 Camaro in his garage. I learned so much from Dave and miss him dearly. Praying for Bird, Marty and family. Mark

So sorry to hear of Dave's passing. I don't believe our paths had ever crossed, but sounds like he brought a lot of fun and happiness. My condolences to family and friends.

I met Dave about a year ago at a local event in my area in Tustin Ca, he was driving his Black Nova, it is beautiful. He was gracious, engaging and a real gentleman … May he rest in peace.

Praying for Dave's family and friends. I thank God for His mercy and grace. None of us deserve it, but I am thankful for the free gift of salvation. May God comfort the family and bring peace into their lives. God bless the folks on this site.

For the Southern California folks-and anyone else that wants to make the drive-please come help us celebrate the life of a wonderful and caring person, Dave Lindsley.


Please bring your collector car-I am getting more info as to what time you should show up with your collector car...and will post that info here.


I hope to see a bunch of my friends there

Dave would always get me motivated-one last time. I'll dig out the Goat, dump the 13 yr old gas, and throw something on for wheels and tires. See you guys there.
