Wow...I didn't know he had the patent on the overhead cam engine, that's pretty cool. He sounds like a down to earth guy...too bad his business went under.

hey now, he was acquited for that.. he had no part in that, as far as I believe, and he got screwed royally over it, as far as I know he's had to declare personal bankruptcy twice now because of that BS, which sucks because he was well on his way to becoming the pres or VP of GM, and then well on the way to becoming a very decent/solid car company..

how about a serious response? :-p wonder what he was doing in NJ?

Well, he was aquitted, but that by no means implies he had nothing to do with it. He was recorded by police with a suitcase of cocaine, telling an undercover officer it was as good as gold... you tell me if he had nothing to do with it or not.

I am sorry he died, I did like his car, he did have incredible potential at GM, and I admire his balls for starting a car company. Sucks he went under, and sucks he died.
But I do not like the fact that he tried to sell cocaine to get himself out of debt.
