Heavy heart.
He built the front end on my first truck at Low Manufacturing.
An innovator in the early days.

I did a 30ish minute interview with Spencer Low back in 2012 at the Parker 425. It was actually one of the first interviews I ever did. Audio quality is a little rough, and my interview skills were not perfected yet, but Spencer's content talking about his career and his love of off-road were great. Worth the listen if you were a fan of his or that era of off-road racing.

Bought a Low Datsun 4x4 in '82 and had Spencer do some work at his shop, nice guy. I went to one of my first car races in Barstow shortly afterward and bumped into him, he acted like we were old friends and came over to see what I had done since he last saw the truck.

Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
