I had the pleasure of meeting him once. Was an awesome guy.

Regardless of what emblem is on the hood of your pony/muscle/sports car.....gotta respect what he did for the American automotive world.

As a ford guy...well, I consider him a legend.

RIP! Hope God has a lot of spare tires and a fresh supply of fuel up there for ya!
