    Not trying to be a dick here, but no one was making fun of your friend's passing away like you posted in the previous post.
    Just calling it as I see it, that's all.

    Not to be disrespectful, but if he has passed, what's the issue with giving his name? Not like he's going to get in trouble for leaking info, especially info that wasn't correct.

    I don't have anything to prove. If you really know someone on the team, then they will know his last name. If you don't, then his last name won't matter to you anyways.

    What exactly did he mean when he just wrote "poof"? Certainly seemed like he was implying I had disappeared without answering the earlier question posted about his name, thereby implying I was lying.

    What is your thought on what he wrote?

    Only thing that had been incorrect so far is announcement date...those change all the time, so not a surprise.

    The real question here is why aren't all these people "supposedly in the know" standing up and saying "Hey, we know Steve ______ and sorry about his passing?"

    Maybe because they aren't really in the know?

    thePill hasn't been here in a good bit (lolz). Maybe DBK and SID will answer the bell but no one here is 'in the know' this whole section is pretty much conjecture and frustration.

    Ah, Conjecture and Frustration, I know them well. We grew up together and they are still my two closest friends.

    DBK has answered your questions before OP. Based on his answers I don't believe he knows of your source. Which tells one of two things.

    He was not directly on the Ford Performance team or there is no source. Now I may be wrong.

    I'm sorry for your friends loss regardless of who he was.

    That is EXACTLY what I think he meant.
    Still bro,......I struggle to find where someone in this thread is making fun or mocking that someone that has passed. They may be mocking you, but no the deceased.

    my poof comment was referring to you disappearing. And dont be so passive, if you have a problem with me, say it. I had zero ill will in what I said.

    I do not talk ill of the deceased, my father taught me better than that.

    Anything else? Do NOT attempt to misconstrue what I say, everyone in this thread knew what I meant. Come on.

    It is odd that op gets called out and then suddenly two weeks later his source is gone.

    I looked for a Ford press release on your friends passing but could not find any. Found an retired exec passing and a young Ford engineer in training who passed by accident. Maybe it's too early.

    There wouldn't be a press release, he was a contractor during the later years (which is extremely common, ask any of the other engineers. Specifically he worked on the carbon fiber rear wing of the next GT500 for those in the know). Sorry if I came across accusatory, it's just very frustrating loosing a friend and then having to defend yourself over it (I didn't disappear, so still now sure how "poof" applies, but doesn't matter).

    To On D Bit: you clearly don't know what you're saying, I've been saying the same thing for over a year...not two weeks and I just didn't get called out. Think what you want about me or my source, the fact is that what you think doesn't matter to me. I was simply on here sharing information and if you believe it or not, that's your choice, I wont loose any sleep over it.

    Steve W. was his name. Ask anyone involved on the project, specifically anyone involved in the aerodynamic engineering portion, I'm sure they will be more than happy to tell you his full last name, since it's so important for whatever reason. If you don't know any of these people, well, guess you're not "in the know" like you think. Be sure to tell his coworkers when you ask that you need to know his last name so that you can believe information his friend provided to you as fellow GT500 fan, I'm sure that will go over well.

    You did just just get called out.

    Then two weeks later your source disappears. All we know was that someone was giving you false information.

    Again sorry for the loss of your friend but he was definitely not a source...

    On D Bit: he was a valid source and you have zero proof otherwise other than other people on here have that provided zero proof as well. Good try though.
