This man's whole life is an amazing story. A legendary gearhead. Probably one of the longest surviving heart transplant patients to date on top of all his contributions in the automotive world.
Godspeed and rest in peace, sir.

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!
