ok

john was obsessed with this whole corvette and concept thing. i'll get straight to the viper thing. he was in litigation with chrysler at the time of his death. we had local news print on it here. he submitted a concept to them (chrysler) some time prior. he called it the mongoose. they said thank you for your interest but we're not interested. then low and behold they came up with same car body called viper. he never signed off. they had the gall to accuse him of hacking into their design facility to steal his drawings. he died suddenly but they found it in there hearts to give his wife a 250000 settlement. my sister was his first wife for 12 years. more later. cosmo

re john

we all have to go. he went very happy. in short he just made a deal and was on his way home with his friend. they were joking, john went into a belly laugh and died before it was over. not so good for his friend though. cosmo
