He was the man for a Pro Stock car back in the day. RIP Sir.

He's local to me, haven't seen him in years though. Lots of really innovative cars came out of his shop. My friend still has the first Pro Stock car to leave his Blaine MN Shop in 1970. A 1970 Z-28 Camaro. Race car since new. Looking at it, its unmistakable for a Ness car. Don even authenticated it many years ago, and the story behind it.

RIP Don.

Don was one of the best fabricators and one of the nicest guys around drag racing. He was constantly pushing the envelope on innovation. He will be missed by many.

Wow .... kind of got into the scene with him a bit back when I had a parts and decal "deal" with the RMS crew and Frankie.

I think that most all chassis builders wish they were as talented as he was.
