I've heard a lot of stories over the years about a man named Tony Fox. The stories go that Tony was an engineer for Magna American or Yuba back in the 1960's when they launched the Mark VII. Through my research I've been unable to place him there, and his name does not appear on any of the patents held by Magna Engineering, YUBA, Magna American or Shopsmith Inc. Any facts about Tony would be most welcome!
Tony most famous venture was his attempt to manufacture what would have been the world's first private jet called FoxJet. Here's a great article about FoxJet: Tony Fox, The Man Who Would Be King
