    He passed away this morning. :(

    Not that I wasn't already, but I'm extremely honored to own/drive the last car that he ever built.

    Godspeed Don!

    Don Ness was the pioneer of the current 4-link suspension system used in Pro Stock and Comp Eliminator that many have copied.
    He has a patent on his 4-link too that it is still good for another 12 years.
    Godspeed! :(

    RIP Don , we thought you were going to live forever . While we were at your shop enjoying the construction and design of our car , every day a new idea came to you . Don Ness was a true Icon , while sitting in your office you told me a beautiful story about being in the hospital , laying on a bed and you were above the doctors as they discussed your condition . They said you were not going to make it , you laughed and said "oh yes I am" , God was with you then and he is with you now , RIP .
