When Ivor Allsop died October 12 at 82, he left a rich legacy. Allsop Inc., founded in his garage over 30 years ago, has become a company of avid tinkerers, related by blood and business, who believe the world is theirs to improve by invention and redesign, holding over 450 patents world wide. These people also are avid capitalists, so if there's money to be made by improving or developing a product, look out: Anything is fair game. For this legacy of innovation and marketing saavy, Dealerscope names the late Ivor Allsop and his sons Jim and Mike to its Hall of Fame.
