Default Dave Tang of Grip Video passed away yesterday...my condolences to family and friends.

For those of you that knew him, Dave Tang passed away yesterday of throat cancer, which he had been battling for the past year or so. I didn't know David well, and had only talked to him a few times, but I do know that he was one of the founders of Grip Video, and one of the gentleman who helped put drifting on the map in the US and in Hawaii through their videos.

He was also an avid car enthusiast and enjoyed that luxury VIP style with his black 98 Lexus GS400.

My condolences go out to his family and friends, and hope that his spirit will live on through his work.

RIP Dave.

Dave...we'll miss you man.

I still cant believe this. Dave was one of those guys i'd always meet up with when in HI. One of the coolest guys ive known, always down to hang out, have a drink. Super cool guy to hang out with, always keeping our grip video collection current. RIP Dave!

I was on a plane headed for Tokyo Auto Salon one year and I got up to stretch my legs. Dude in the seat in behind me said: " Hey, Tom." Was Dave. I said "you late too?" I forgot to update my passport and was a day late for the show.

Much Mahalos to him and the Grip Video family for being there with us while we were just getting started.

My deepest condolences goes out to his family and friends. What a tradgic loss for the car tuner society. He will be missed . . .

Jason went to Iraq for a long long time and other things happened, so they put it on the back burner for now.
