Long serving VHRA (Victorian Hot Rod Show) director and respected hot rodder, Daryl Scholz passed away last Thursday, October 18, 2018, after battling cancer for the past five years.
An ASRF Gold Pass holder and an active hot rodder, Daryl built numerous vehicles that were admired and awarded at ASRF National events from the mid 1970s through mid 1980s, including a green 1934 Chevy sedan, the ‘California T’ T bucket with matching trailer, and a Model A closed cab pickup dubbed Pasadena Pickup. A second version of the Pasadena Pickup built in the late 1990s won Top Street Rod at the ASRF Nationals at Hawkesbury in 2001.
“Daryl was a Director of the Victorian Hot Rod Associations for 28 years and was a mentor and support to all those who wanted to follow their passion and interest for cars,” confirmed fellow members of the VHRA. “It’s with a heavy heart we have to say goodbye to a long-time friend, VHRA Member and a Hot Rodder. Our thoughts are with Daryl’s family, who he cared for very much. RIP Daryl we can’t thank you enough for all you support in the VHRA, you will be missed by all in the Hot Rodder Community.”
