We here in So Cal lost a great friend in the auto scene today. I just received a call that Robert Hines passed away this weekend. :(. I just talked to him on Saturday about this years 11-99. However he did enjoy every second of his 90+ years here. He specially enjoyed flying back in the day and driving his sports cars daily. He just recently purchased a new SLS, but that enjoyment was cut short due to his passing. Bob I loved hearing your stories every time you picked me up and we were off to a show. Will surely miss you, you were a good friend. I hope there are cars up there for you to drive, with the best roads possible. RIP Sir it was an honor knowing you :bow1:

Last time I saw Robert, last weeks Supercar Sunday


Robert and I at last years 11-99

My condolences to you, Dilan and those that were close to Mr. Hines. I met him on the 11-99 run last year and he was a real gentleman. I would never have guessed that he was some 90 years old...goes to show that cars guys are forever young.

Aww D. These pics are awesome. Now u got me cryin. Bob was so nice. Dilan introduced me to him like what D, three years ago? First time I met him I saw his little placard in his car. For those that don't know, Bob had a little note on his car that gave a clear messge..



He said to me I could lean against his car when ever I wanted but I had to follow the rules! :lol: from that day on evertime I saw him we always joked around about that. D, thanks again for introducing me to him. He was a gem to everyone he met.

RIP, Robert. One of my coworkers was just telling me the other day about the nice old man with the insane collection of Mercs he'd met at a car show. :(
