ZRush - sad news


Recommended Posts

I am very sad to report that our friend Scott Moschetto passed away from a heart attack December 9th. Vicki called me last night. She is shattered and hasn't been able to talk with anyone for quite some time. Her husband and best friend was 43. Scott played drums in a band and suffered a massive coronary during one of his gigs. Vicki tells me that Scott's headstone will be engraved with ZRush and his drumsticks.

I last saw Scott and Vicki at Z-Fest in Orlando last October. Scott coordinated the music for me during the event. Vicki tells me she is planning to sell the Vintage Z "Ol Yeller" but will keep ZRush and continue with the restoration of the Scarab.

I am stunned. Thanks for sharing this Chris. I have missed both of them on this site for quite some time. 43.....jeez. My thoughts are with them today. I hope Carl is giving Scott the grand tour.

Peace be with them and us all.

Hi Chris:

This is simply Unbelievable news. I'm dumbfounded that no one in the Z Community around here knew about this - nor had any opportunity to attend Scott's funeral etc. Four months ago?..... This is just too sad to really think about....

Vicki had to be completely shattered....

Thanks for letting us know.

I had noticed the absence of ZRush of late, and hoped it was because of the Scarab restoration...I'm saddened to see that it was for much more tragic reasons.

Words on a forum post can't convey what is intended in this situation, but my heart is heavy today. I am very sorry for Vickie's loss.

Thoughts and prayers are with her....

I met Scott and Vicky at the MSA show, I believe in 2004 when the ZRush car took Best of Show. I remember talking to Scott about Datsuns and music since my brother is a drummer and I play sax and keyborard. Very sad news indeed.

Chris - I opened this thread expecting to see pictures of a bent bumper, a cracked taillight housing or even an oil stain in the driveway.

Vicki - I am still stunned as I write this. I am so sorry to hear this. My thoughts are with you. 43 is way too young....

Thanks so much Z friends. I am heartbroken and lost whithout Scott. He was my best friend. Everything we did had something to do with Z cars. As 26th said Scott was jamming with his band and had a massive heart attack. Scott had always told me that he wanted to either go while in his Z or playing the drums, two of his most beloved passions. He was a good man and a great friend to many in the show car community.

I am sorry to not have notified our local Z friends but I have truly been overwhelmed. Scott had a large funeral with many show car friends. I cannot believe how many peoples' lives he touched. He was a rebel in the local car show community for bringing a "Datsun" to compete with a Chevelle or Mustang. He loved every moment when his "Japanese" car whipped the Muscle Car crowd.

Scott came from a large Italian family and they are all here by me locally so I am not alone.

The Scarab restoration continues as Scott would have wished. The car will be restored to a Museum piece and dedicated in his memory.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

Vicky

I know the suddeness of these matters. I lost my Dad with a massive heart attack. My heart goes out to the family. I keep living day to day and enjoying every minute of it. I have had a heart attack and a stroke. I just went through radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. I feel lucky to be alive. Enjoy yourselves, boys, because you never know what's around the next corner.
