I can truly say that he was one of my heroes growing up. Granted nobody is 
perfect - but he stood up to the big automakers, and did his own thing even 
when it meant that his name would be used without getting compensation for it. 
I was glad to see success in his later life.

From the son of a chicken farmer, to one of the most respected automotive 
designers of our time. He will be missed.
