My brilliantly eccentric cousin Bill. If you are on the highway and pass or are passed by a semi-tractor-trailer, look on the back of the trailer and it will likely say Air-Ride Equipped. He invented that technology.
At one point in possession of a Lambroghini Jalpa which he felt showed disappointing performance for a soi-disant Italian supercar, he took it apart -- and I mean completely apart, installed a supercharger, and rebuilt the entire drive train to handle the increased power.
Before he was a teenager, he adapted some stuff he picked up at the Ohio Power dump and a coat hanger antenna to take over all the TV sets in the neighborhood. When I passed on a parabolic radar antenna I was done with, the sky lit up.
I admire him as much as anyone I know and have no idea what he will do next.
