Jeez Eddie, aren't you supposed to have a pilot's license for that!?
You were an excellent driver and very exciting to watch.
BTW, you have a beautiful new GT!

Too much hang time, actually.

It gave me time to wonder if we were going to hit the scoreboard, and if we did- is it going to hurt- or are the lights just going to go out.

The car crash didn't hurt- I was racing a borrowed car the next day.

But it took a year to recover enough from the broken bones and other trauma from this boat crash, to be able to ride a motorcycle again.

The doctors all said the brain damage was a pre-existing condition.

yes the kind of brain damage you are talking about is closely related to another medical condition referred to as hypergonadysis ie big ball syndrome

How did I miss this one? (the manual). Glad you're a survivor! I met the nice young man who bought your Heritage on a run up to Tortilla Flat.

He is a cool dude, isn't he? Ercie and I really enjoyed his visit to us here in Wichita Falls.

I am glad he is able to enjoy the Heritage the way I envisioned using it myself, with the Whipple supercharger and the Heffner exhaust.

But then I got hooked on open wheelers, and now have THREE of them.

Actually, I think it was his idea to get both the 06 Heritage and the 2019 GT side by side in the sun. Great idea, a stunning pair.

Speaking of sr71, the owner of the local municipal FBO, back in the day when we had our own Learjet 25D, (499EH), was one of the lucky ones to fly the SR-71, and he had some interesting stories to tell! And he built a very nice RV-something aircraft.

Cheers,

Eddie

The sale of my Lola T-70 coupe is what made the purchase of my two Ford GTs possible.

Hey, special K, those are cool pictures, and I did not have those. Thanks for posting.

This was my last day with mine.

When ordering and specifying options for my new Ford GT,I asked for, and received, Serial number 049, because of my drag racing "First in the Fours" elapsed time of 4.99, on 4/9/88. How cool is that!

Eddie - That's awesome (y) As a teen in the 80s my dad took me to the Gatornationals for quite a few years in a row, and I saw you race (y)🍻 ... along with Don Garlits, Kenny Bernstein, John Force, Shirley Muldowney, Warren Johnson, etc etc. I still live right here in Gainesville.
