"There Are Two Ways to Enslave A Country....One is by the Sword, the Other is by Debt.".......John Adams
I just cannot get enough of these type of film clips.
I'm sitting in my hotel room in Venice, closer to Le Mans than usual, but alas, not close enough to make the race!
I didn't see it in that write up but I'm sure the #1 Mark IV GT will be at Le Mans and will run the vintage race car parade laps before the start. How great would it be to see and hear that car at speed on the Mulsanne again?!?! If Ford does not have it there, they should have.
The Henry Ford Museum restored the #82 Lotus-Ford Indy Car of Jim Clark a couple years ago and sent it on tour in Europe where it ran at Goodwood and other venues. Upon it's return to the states they took it back to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and let a present day Indycar driver (I forget who) run it on the track. How cool is that?
Old Warbirds are best viewed in the air and old Racecars are best viewed and appreciated when they are making noise on the track. Thanks to the Henry Ford Museum for keeping these old and priceless Ford race cars running.
The road to hell on earth is paved with the good intentions of liberals.

Chip - did you get my email last week??
Chip, the FGT winner will be on a European Grand Tour next year.
Dan Gurney mentioned it during a radio interview during the Le Mans broadcast last night.
It will be wonderful seeing it on the track again.
