What can we say but express our gratitude to one of those impossible to repeat motoring stories that sadly was put to an end on friday night. Only in America, where ingenuity from time to time defies history, could this have happened. A man of many talents with good hands to make things go fast. Achieved 82 records in Bonneville with an Austin Healey in 1954, only to break all his bones at la Carrera Panamericana later that year. Le Mans winner with Aston Martin in 1955. The king of texan chili, the only single man that put pretentious Enzo Ferrari at stake humiliating him with his Cobras all across Europe. Rest in peace hero.
