Default Craig Morrison

Craig was taken by Covid way too soon. Craig and his dad Art were Art Morrison Enterprises. Lots of people drive on their chassis's. Was a really nice always smiling guy. R.I.P. Craig.

Wow that is such a shock! I got to know Art and Craig a couple years ago. Art always gave Craig the credit for taking the company to a level he never dreamed of.
He was a great guy and will be missed!

AME (Art Morrison Enterprises) is local-the whole manufacturing facility is just North of Tacoma about 30 minutes south of Seattle. Art had a nice little business basically making drag chassis bits, back-half narrow kits, lightweight front IFS stubs, etc. Craig was apparently the visionary who saw the fully engineered chassis for specific postwar cars being viable. I'd consider him the godfather of that whole industry that is now firmly established. I texted a friend who was close with him to confirm, and he did-he said yesterday was hard. He just said Craig was one of the good guys, and he was glad to have known him. I don't think I ever heard a bad word spoken about the guy. He was just 44-leaves a family and a father who probably was feeling like the future of his family and company were set. RIP. You just cannot take the future for granted.

Bummer news for sure. I had spoken to Craig a couple of times and bought some tri-five hardware from him. He was a great guy. Sad to hear at such a young age too.
