Wednesday April 29 2020 our good friend Darrell Vittone passed away after a battle of several health issues, Darrell didn’t do good for the last couple of weeks.
Son of Joe Vittone founder of EMPI, Darrell was a pretty important name in aircooled VW performance. He was a very fine technician with a high progressive vision.
Tuning of Volkswagens he did since he was a kid…
Our thoughts and feelings go out to Darrell’s family, he will be a big miss for sure…
I was lucky that I became a good friend with Darrell and we traveled together sometimes. Darrell loved Italian food, so I brought him to Italy once, in my 58 deluxe… We both enjoyed that trip so much. Darrell kept on saying how much it reminded him to his grandparents, and also to a trip with his dad all over Europe in the early seventies.
We have so many good memories with Darrell we selected some very special moments together to share with all of You.
Darrell can you rest in peace my friend, I will always remember you and many of my decisions I have to make I will do with your advise in my memory, be sure of that.
