He was definitely one of the greatest American motorsport icons. Even though he was 89 years old and has had numerous heart problems over the years, I was still shocked to hear the news. As he so often said, ” Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, so live for today!”
Sad to hear when one of the greats leaves us, but he left us with a litter of classic racecars/cars and his legacy will live on. Strange, I was only thinking about him the other day when I was reading about the GT40 development, and now this.
