Default Re: Joe Giba

Joe was one of the nicest "gentle" men I ever met. I remember showing him a model of a midget I built when I was a kid. He took such an intrest in it. He was at the house to visit with my Dad. But took the time to give a little kid some attention.

He bought a new Datsun 1200, probably in 1971, (remember those?) from the dealer where my Dad worked as the service manager. He would ONLY let my brother, John, do the service work on it. I think he must have put over 200,000 miles on that little car.

I just remember what a great, nice man he was. He would not come to any of the his friend's funerals... It would break him up too much. That was just Joe.

I would love to hear some Joe Giba racing stories, if anyone has some.
