After years of pursuing high performance car design, and a lifetime of loving machines (his first word as a child), Michael Young has been thrilled to join the SCG team as head designer. “Working directly with Jim to realize his goals has been such a privilege. Not only have I benefited from a complete wealth of insight about cars, history and culture, but also a community of rather incredible self driven individuals. My career started designing vacuums and PowerWheels, something of a backdoor entrance. Fitting, for a group that is all about rolling up sleeves, following the charge of a rouge visionary and redefining what is possible.”
