I am not sure what to say, But wish I didn't have to make this announcement:
Mike (AzCoupe) Winterboer passed away yesterday morning at 11 am from Cancer. His passing is a great loss to our hobby as he lived with a great passion for all things about the Ford Inline sixes. Mike helped reawaken the enthusiasm and pride of owning and having a six, here in the U S anyways. I will miss you my friend, God speed.My thoughts and prayers along with Condolences to Mikes' Wife Barb, Son Jason and the rest of his family. 82F100

wow, I guess after sharing a forum with a guy for almost 13 years, but never actually meeting him, you assume they will be around forever.

So sorry to read this news.

condolences to all family and close friends.

Mike, you will be missed.

So sorry to hear of Mike's passing. I hope that he was a believer in Christ and is alive and roaring with "Power by Ford" I6 on the golden streets of Heaven today.

Prayers to his family.

Sad news. Although I'd never met Mike, like most here, I've certainly benefited from his dedication to our common interests. Thanks Mike. R.I.P.
