Richard "Magoo" Megugorac of Peoria, Arizona. As a teenager Dick would build his modified's. He used to push them down the street so his dad wouldn't know, fire them up and off he would go. Dick bought a Modified from speed shop owner Karl Orr. As he couldn't get the modified legally registered, he used to borrow the license-plate from his dad's pickup before he took off.
Dick served several years in the Army, and he was stationed in Japan after WWII, during the Allied Occupation, as a mechanic instructor. After the war he married his one girlfriend and only true love Lois.
In the early 1960s Dick and his brother-in-law Carl Riggen formed Riggen Slot Cars. In the mid to late 1960s Dick started building cars out of his back garage in Canoga Park. Dick handled the fabrication, bodywork, paintwork and final assembly, while Lois handled the interior work.
