Very sad news, Faye was one of kartings original pioneers and a true character in her own right through her karting travels, to television appearances, to her industry presence, and to just being a nice person.

Was fortunate to meet Faye at the first Quincey and it was indeed a honor.

R.I.P. Faye.

Very sad to learn of Faye's passing. I had the pleasure of meeting her at Medford many years ago and I was in awe. She was very friendly and took the time to have a friendly conversation. She will be truly missed, RIP.

Such a sweetheart. Tom Pierson was a big, overall-wearing guy with a flat top haircut, and Faye was a teeny, pretty little lady when we first met them in '60. She never changed. Charlie met her after many years in Quincy, and she still remembered him from the early sixties. Folks like the Piersons, Duffy, Gil Horstman and others like Mickey Rupp and Jim Yamane were truly greats of our sport. We need a photographic hall of fame with pix of all these folks for the newbies to look at. Ted

My dad took us to the Bug factory around 1958 to buy a kart.
I was probably about 9, but I remember a very good looking young lady helping us.

She really looked hot in those white pants with the "Bug" script on the behind! All the cast at Go Kart were super kind and fun, but there was something about Faye... TJ
