Above: In April 1958 Richard again joined David Brown-Aston Martin as Resident Engineer, based in San Leandro, CA. 

The MkII Notchback at right was his first company car issued (the same one Michael came home from the hospital in), while the MkIII was his last. David Brown was the only other one in the company to have an Aston as a company car, not even John Wyer had one!   This photo was taken at Laguna Seca Raceway August 2006.

Here's a funny one... David Brown had sailed his boat to the south of France and asked that a car be delivered, so Richard was given the job. When he gets there David didn't like the color, so Richard took it back to Feltham again!
