So, what ever became of Mr Hutchinson? Is he still with us, just not wanting to talk about his adventures w/ Lotus and racing or what? I supposedly have a twin-cam engine he built that was one of two engines w/ a genuine 26R that was auto-crossed in Columbus in the early 1970's. Looking down the intake ports it looks beautiful.

Ah, Sandy, if they were all running, wouldn't that be nice. And I haven't mentioned the car you may see me in, that I would like to take to LeMans historic in 2020. I'm trying to have it back together for this next summer.

I worked for Gus back in the early 80's. He owned a solar energy company called Solar Kinetics. After that he started a lighting company using technology from his solar collector reflectors. He is still on the board of directors at the lighting company. As of 6 months ago he was still kickin!
