    A long time member, TGC forum owner, Galant enthusiast, and friend, is not in good health. Some of you guys may know that VegasMatt has been battling stage 4 colon cancer since December 2013. Recently his wife posted that he is not doing well and was brought home to spend his last days with his family.

    This thread is for us to share stories, pictures, meets, and happy memories of Matt Clason.

      Man I wish I'd gotten a chance to get to know him before he passed. His G is my favorite one on TGC. Rest In Peace Matt

      For any that wish to pass along there wishes, i found this.

      WOW! I just went to the link above and thumbed through all of Matt's pictures. I always try to portray myself as a tough individual, however I damn neared teared up. Especially now that I'm a father to a little girl. I've NEVER met Matt before, but I can see the passion and love he had (HAS) for his family and daughter. May he rest in glory! The pain and suffering has stopped, and on to a new chapter my friend.

      Anyone here still keep in contact with his family? At least to set up maybe bbqs or whatever just to let them know they are not forgotten just due to Matt's passing?

      Just seen this, been years since I been in here.. but remember all the way back on the yahoo board that he was always helpful and had a passion for his car that we all shared in. Never met him in person but felt a brotherhood in the passion of our G's.
