Kiwi's car third from the left on the top of the parking lot of the Peterson Auto Museum, Los Angeles. The event was a tribute to Carroll Shelby after his passing in 2012.

This is really interesting. These are slides from Kiwi's personal collection. Probably around 2003, Kiwi test drove and photographed this "test mule" Ford GT. The desert background leads us to believe it might be the Ford Proving Grounds in Arizona, but we can't be 100% sure. Per Kiwi, they were doing some tests of the chassis and the GT was fitted with a 5.0, not the production supercharged 5.4.

Another photo from the Peterson Auto Museum event.

Kiwi giving a speech

A screen-shot from a memorial for Kiwi on the SAAC Forum.

While shopping for souvenirs at the SAAC booth at SAAC 38 with Kiwi, we asked if they had any SAAC patches and they said "no." I was super bummed out. Kiwi, being the nice guy that he is, said he'd give me his G.T. 350 Shelby patch which I put on a hat [shown here] after returning from the convention. Thanks Kiwi! 

Kiwi with his daughter, Daniella 

This is a 2007 Saleen Parnelli Jones limited edition Ford Mustang along with an original 1970 Mustang Boss 302. Kiwi did not drive these cars, but he did take these photographs. Pretty awesome!

Kiwi showing some uninformed people how to convert a gas dryer from natural gas to propane.


Here is Kiwi's daughter, Daniella, and his son, Noah. They are sitting on a bench located in Carson City, Nevada where Kiwi grew up. On the bench you can see that there is a memorial plaque dedicating the bench to Kiwi and his family.

2015 Lantern Floating Hawaii

This is Kiwi's Brother, Michael who made a lantern for the 17th Annual Lantern Floating Hawaii, which is a ceremony honoring peoples' loved ones. It is held on Memorial Day and is sponsored by the local people involved with Shinnyo Buddhism. Thousands of people are present, and the lanterns light up the beach as the night falls on the area. This wonderful event is an opportunity for loved ones to say goodbye to those that they love and miss dearly. We miss you Kiwi!

Lanterns floating in the ocean. Thousands of lanterns are created for this event. You can see how they illuminate the water.
