I received this screenshot today informing of the passing of Baz from Datsport. This is a huge loss to the Datsun community, so I felt it should be posted up here. Baz gave a lot to the Datsun community and to Ozdat over the years, and there was possibly nobody worldwide as commited, knowledgeable or as motivated as Baz when it came to keeping these cars on the road.
The first time I met Baz was at the 2009 Datsun Nationals. He was more than happy to have a chat over a beer, and welcomed us into his company. Since then I spoke with Baz periodically, about life and Datsuns, and visited him every time I was in Adelaide. The last time was in early 2016, where he was showing me the quality of his reproduction door seals amongst other things. His passion and enthusiasm was second to none.
Hopefully he is off somewhere driving a Datsun at full throttle, right on the edge, because the Baz I remember would not want to be resting in peace! My thoughts are with T'racy and his family and close friends. Truly a great loss. It was a pleasure and a privilege to have know you Baz!
