Mark Bowman - 24 JAN 2019

Mark wasnt a member here, but many of us met up with Mark at Lebanon Valley Dragway, where he and mr 4 speed ran their Chevelles. Mark's 69 was the one Chris often quoted for its great 1/4 perf with a low compression, old skool Summit cammed, flat top 454.

Thoughts and prayers to the Bowman family, and to our member mr 4 speed, Chris Corwel. The Bowman's lost their dad, husband, protector, provider. Chris lost a great, one of his best, gear head buddies. Way too soon.

RIP Mark. Catch you on the flip side.

Re: Mark Bowman - 24 JAN 2019

Sorry for your loss Chris, and for his family. There's never enough time, and it always hurts more when someone goes too soon. It looks like he made the most of his time and enjoyed what time he did have. Godspeed.

Re: Mark Bowman - 24 JAN 2019

I am so sorry for your loss.I had only met Mark the one time when I had bought a 396 from him.As usual I messed up and left my tie downs at home and "no sweat" he said and he bailed me out,gave me an old tie down and a heavy piece of rope and then helped me tie it down.We talked cars and Chevelles a while and in just that short time meeting with Mark I could tell that he was a good man.
