Chris Cutler nabbed our attention and thousands of others' when he built an Acura NSX trailer for his Acura NSX. He chopped one in half to tow behind the other, and his DIY work even inspired Acura to recreate the project with brand new versions of the supercar. Unfortunately, I'm sad to write that Cutler was killed in a crash early Monday morning while behind the wheel of a 2001 Honda S2000.

NBC Connecticut reports that Cutler was driving on I-91 South in Wallingford when he hit a guard rail near exit 13. After going off the road and down an embankment, he was transferred to Yale New Haven Hospital where he passed away. He was just 41 years old.

While I never met Cutler in person, several of my co-workers in the Northeast did. He was a fixture at grassroots events, like 7's Day in NYC where our Social Media Editor Maddox Kay first talked to him in 2022. Aaron Segal, product manager at The Drive's parent company, also met Cutler and his dog Cassius several times at car shows around the area. Both have nothing but great things to say about him, not only for his obvious ingenuity but also for his kindness.
