Losing a good friend is one of life's true tragedies, and Courtney "Tito" Halowell had lots of good friends who are genuinely missing him. Known throughout the automotive and motorcycle industries alike, his 20-year career included stints on almost a dozen magazines, including MT. His automotive credentials paled in comparison to his ability to make friends along the way. A founder of Negative Camber, Courtney was well known, and well respected from coast to coast.

One group of NC club members in particular reacted to the shocking news of Courtney's passing in a positive way, hoping to ease the pain for the family members he left behind. Mike Barcia and Chuck Scheer, longtime members of Florida's NC chapter, decided the most appropriate way to honor Courtney's memory was to organize a car and truck show. Friends from all over flocked to the show to pay their last respects, and once the afternoon was over, just over $5,000 was raised for the Halowell family. The show itself was intimate and had a great collection of rides and great people, and nobody forgot the reason they were all gathered together.
