We lost a true innovator. It takes vision and a big set of balls to start a whole industry from scratch in your garage. Richard was truly one of a kind.

Lost a very sharp individual! It's amazing how fooling with AMC engines led him to casting components. Dick Arons was sectioning heads length wise and making four heads into two tall port heads, after furnace welding them together. 100s of hours of labor and then they were notorious leakers! Maskin said I'll just design/cast my own AMC heads, found a foundry in Canada to do it, and he was off and running!
