My prayers for Zap as well.  He has helped me a couple of times, shared the "brotherhood", he needs to get well!  Been through too much to go out like this!

Talking about our hobby and the folks we know is kinda like a history book and the obit section of the paper.  Our Saturday morning breakfast group of car guys has shrunk from an average of 10 - 12 down to two of us with an occasional interloper.  All but one of them are now gone.  Everybody else has fallen to one ailment or another.

A Hamb member and friend/neighbor of Zap's has been posting updates. There's been a few very encouraging good news posts, and today a pic of Zap in his hospital bed sitting up and smiling....great news and very encouraging.
Zap looks like Santa Clause...who woulda guessed, lol.
