Its rumoured that he was in the hospital due to complications from a venereal disease. I'm just repeating what I heard, I have no facts.

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

Yah, I know him from that show..and a few commercials I saw.

He seemed like a real ******* (from the show) but still a cool guy.

That is way to young to die these days! Heart condition maybe? High blood pressure seemed to be the issue on his show, or at least his act showed that. I loved that show!
To quote John McCain: "Wellness,wellness, wellness".

YOu have to eat right and exercise regularly if you want to live to be in your 90's like my dad who still has perfect sight and drives his own car. His memory is better than mine. He eats right and exercises.
