Richard Peters of Fresno, California. Richard is Chuck Krikorian's brother in law, another well known Fresno hot rodder.
After selling the Ala Kart, Richard gave up cars, devoting himself to full-time farm management, owning his own airlines, and more. "He then started again at Blackie's last few shows," Gene Sadoian told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in December of 2020. "Don Lokey worked for Richard, but retired and then began building cars for Richard." After Gene introduced Richard to Art Goldstrum, Richard started a museum.
