Angry Tom Colangelo passed away ? :-(

Hi guys,

If this is true : http://www.connpost.com/breakingnews/ci_6808829.
IMHO, then we lost one of the best designer of electronics we had.

Please, can someone confirm this ?

Mr Colangelo seems to have had serious issues, he already got into trouble with the police at August 7 : www.hamdendailynews.com/bbbg.html

Default Hoax

I think it's a hoax. Tom Colangelo is much younger than 57 years.
And he usually bikes to work.

Qtic,

i suggest you take a look at Colangelo/Viola's patent applications.
Colangelo designed the ML-1 in the late 70s, check out his picture of the 1979/1980 interview.

(the story about the Hamden accident was posted at the French forum a week ago)

Class D patent

What is amazing about the US is that anything about anyone can be obtained.
Like for instance the contributions a Mr T Colangelo made to the Democratic party, and his contributions to the Gore campaign in 2000.
A few dollars more gives the adress and phone number of Mr Steven Marsh in Hamden, CT.

The ram intake WS6 version of the Pontiac Firebird is an attraction of the 2002 model btw, comparable with the 2002 Camaro SS.
Standard a 165mph and zero-60 in 5 second screamer.
It's real easy to get 100 hp and 100 ft-lbs more out of the 350 block, just a simple bolt-on will do.
If Mr C had been me, he'd gone for a blueprinted Gen V 502CI shortblock, Dart Big Chief heads and fuel injection, +500hp/ft-lbs to start with.
The Viola building is located in the centre of New Haven, near the river.
At 06.45AM, someone would take the interstate 61, unless he was in an early morning racing mood.

(ps: John Curl is from 1942, Mark Levinson from 1946, Thomas Phillip Michael Colangelo from 1950, each time 4 years difference)

This thread was a sad announcement about someone who died.

I guess I find it disrespectful that some use this announcement to go off on a tangent about patents and cars.

I am sorry that some died in a car accident at the age of 57.

-Tom
