Unhappy Ronnie Hunter Transmission Builder in Atlanta RIP

It is with a saddened heart to inform all the VW Enthusiasts that had any dealings with him, that he passed away yesterday 11-19 from a work related accident.
This is VERY SAD NEWS and I wish his family the best!
He was a great man and did great things with transmissions!
I can say that I have Ronnie Hunter Rebuilt Tranny in my BUS and I am PROUD of that!

Whenever we found out of arrangements, I will pass it on.

Very sad news. Ronnie was a great guy. He built great transaxles and was the kind of person you liked to deal with. My black car rolls a Hunter transaxle now.
