I was saddened by the news that Mike Dunn passed away. Mike was a long time Ferrari owner, restorer, and re manufacturer of Vintage Ferrari parts. He was an engineer by trade, and traveled and lived in Europe extensively, and always found time to buy Ferraris when the right car came along. He was one of the usual faces at Ferrari events in the 70s and 80s showing a freshly restored car he did himself. Mike reproduced many parts for his restorations and sold them to others looking for the same parts. His company “Mad Enterprises” sold many hard to find rubber pieces and reproduction tools that Mike painstakingly had re manufactured to exact copies. Mike sold his business to PR Products a few years ago to scale back his Ferrari work, but he would still be seen standing among the big names in the Ferrari restoration world. He always had a broad smile on his face when I saw him on the lawn at Pebble Beach, and I know it was because he was happiest among the old Ferraris. Rest in Peace Mike, we’re going to miss you.
Resident of Newark
Michael Dunn, 37 year resident of Fremont/Newark passed away at home on October 20, 2013 after a valiant battle with cancer. He was 73 years old.
Mike was born in London, England in 1940 and immigrated to the United States at the age of ten. He grew up in Piedmont where he honed his love of cars and speed, eventually racing his 60’s Corvettes throughout California, winning records at Half Moon Bay, Sacramento, Pomona, Fremont Drag Strip and beyond. His ability to develop and harness horsepower evolved into B.H.J. Products, a high performance automotive business he founded and ran with his wife for over 25 years. His interest and knowledge of everything ‘cars’ encompassed Ferrari restoration, judging for the FCA at Pebble Beach and throughout the United States and his newest passion for Ford F-150 Lightning trucks. His hobbies gave him the opportunity to meet and become friends with so many wonderful people.
Mike is survived by his devoted wife of 46 years Becki, his daughters Hollie Meier, Julie Guzior (Frank Guzior), his beloved grandchildren Brennan Meier, Malorie Guzior, John Guzior and his brothers Hardy of Redding and Jon of Oakland.
He had so much more to give and was taken too soon. He will be missed every day.
A Memorial Service will be held for Mike on Friday, November 1, 2013 at 11am at Fremont Memorial Chapel, 3723 Peralta Blvd., Fremont, CA 94536. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you please donate to Pathways Hospice Foundation, 585 N. Mary Ave., Sunnyvale, CA 94085-2905.
