    for those of you who don't know VEGASSMATT (KING MATTRESS), he was one of the early members of the yahoo group founded by BGR in 1999-2000 that became TGC. at one point he took over as head honcho when BGR had to step away for life reasons. matt was one of the most respected members of our community and was a great person as well. RIP bro.

    It's been a while, Matt was an awesome guy and his family as well. From his charity work and all the hang out plus tgc He will be missed.

    Also still have my ride but it's been sitting for years. Just had back surgery and hopefully will attend mod this year.

    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.

    As per last post its been years since I last looked in but I remember how helpful he always was, and so patient with new members. Condolences to Matts family and to all who knew him better than I did. RIP.
