That is terrible. I remember Jim came to the dealer for a tech inspection and gave me a ride in his orange 914 when mine was still in pieces(maybe 2009?) Just saw him about a month ago and he was really excited to begin building his 6 cyl with some crazy fuel injection system. Huge loss for the community and very sorry to hear this.

Very sad to hear this news whilst at Summit Point. Have known Jim for many years, mostly volunteering at Club Race and as a fellow 914 driver. Condolences to the family.
