|I received this email from Steve Herrick:
"Congratulations on taking the time to
assemble this wonderful website.
I just discovered it last night when
my old Berkeley fraternity brother Professor Tino Mingori now at UCLA
me the link.
Under your caption, “what happened to
Steve Herrick,” well, I am definitely here. I suffered from
symptoms from stopping racing for nearly 30 years. However, I
not get out of the industry until 16 years ago. I started
replacement parts for Japanese cars.
My first product was NGK Spark
We became the first US Company to specialize in Japanese Car
When I sold it to Giovanni Agnelli (Fiat fame) we were national and had
about 12,000 part numbers and several locations. The company
named Lazorlite Auto Parts.
As the Import Car Parts
I was asked to be the founding Chairman of AIA (Auto International
After serving as Chairman and CEO of the combined company Lazorlite and
WAWD I went into Venture Capital where I am now.
I never go to the races since I would
rather “do” than watch. Steve Earle, one of my last sponsors,
offered me passes to his races at Laguna Seca.
I commend you for your efforts.
Keep it up!"
