I thought he moved to some Caribbean Island. Maybe he hung out with Jimmy Buffet. BTW, don't mistake the 4+1 for the 4+3 Corvette transmission that he also developed. It's a completely different animal and a white elephant (as far as I'm concerned). BTW2, Richmond/Doug Nash 4+1 transmissions have a 1:1 5th gear, not overdrive so you get your higher gearing in the rearend not the transmission. And the older DN 5 speeds were crash boxes with straght cut gears. Not really street transmissions. The newer STREET transmissions have helical cut gears and syncros.
