Its so damn wonderful that you cant believe it" Automobile Magazine 2004

WoW,

Thank you Tom.....I saw that car at the Gulf Oil headquaters building, in the lobby in 1970 with my Dad, it was the inspiration for my SPF GT40.

I have a metal model with both Jackies autographs on the plaque here in my office.

Love watching those. Would be a blast to drive some of those cars. Just one lap in a 917 would be amazing.

Thanks for the links, Tom. The '69 race was one of the best of the Golden Age.
