    Been circulating in the media yesterday. One of the original designers of the Mustang passed away yesterday near Dayton, Ohio. Gale lived in Tipp City, Ohio . I met him for the first time in 2015 at a national MCA event in Columbus, Ohio. A very outgoing person at the event. I got the opportunity to have him sign my fan shroud on my 2012 GT500 and talk with him about designing the first Mustang. He will be missed by those who knew him and the MCO.

    May he rest in peace! Sad news. I never met him, but he's a legend in the Mustang world, for sure.
