Midwestern Members - Did anyone know Shawn Pensinger from Michigan?
We just received a call from his mother in law, she thought she was calling his employer. Shawn has been a long time customer of mine, which might have been why she had my phone number. Anyway, she told us that Shawn's car fell on him and killed him. I thought I would pass this along in case anyone knew him. Bob

Fell on him? like, when it was on a lift or something?

^^my guess is on jack stands or something in his garage cause most lifts have locks you back it down on

That is so sad, but thanks for the link. Shawn was a really cool guy who loved his car. May God bless him and his family. Bob

After hearing someone cry for help you think that as a human you would follow the cry rather than just listen to it. I couldnt imagine losing the one I love.

Our prayers go out to his family.
Shoot my neighbor hopped my fence the other day when heard me cut my had on a razor in my garage. The neighbor should have done more looking around instead of just taking a step out the door.

Very sad to hear....... I allways kick (hard) my jack stands once I put weight on them to make sure they are not going to slip then I push on the car back and forth. I even keep the jack under the car with weight on it whenever possible..... a car falling scares me to death....

wow! We have done some business with Shawn over the years. This is a very sad thing to read about.
We all here wish his family the best in these hard times.

Serious reminder to ensure the jack stands are properly set up.

Wow, very sad news. Let this be a lesson guys, alot of us have been guilty of this at one time or another. It only takes a extra minute to use the stands!

the report says there were stands under it. he was pulling the driveshaft at the time
maybe it was on a jack and not actually setting on the stands
