Very sad to hear. Sold Chuck some stock boxed rear lower control arms in 2001 or 2002. Had lunch at Carl's Jr. to swap parts/cash. Real nice guy.

Gone too early

I had the good fortune of helping Chuck with a few of his Chevelles. He was a class act.

Re: We lost Chuck Bonasera March 1st.

Met Chuck several years ago when the Nor Cal Chevelles Caminos were formed on a Saturday morning, in a pizza place in Fremont. I dropped out after a couple years due to my work schedule. Looked for Chuck at a couple car shows lately, but didn't realize how sick he was. A real great guy, he'll be missed.

I never met Chuck but traded some emails from time to time. He will be missed.

Wow, just saw the news. How sad. Met him on several occasions. What a nice guy. He always seem so calm to me like nothing could shake him. Rest in peace.
