*One year I had a few days off and a boatload of FF miles so I decided to go to Indy for the day to pick up some swag and watch qualifying. Chad McQeen drove by me in the car as I was crossing Hulman Blvd from swag alley to the speedway. He sold it at auction a year or two later.

I read about that at the time, didn't it fetch over a million bucks? It amazes me the affect fame can have on the price of goods. It is a beautiful example in its own right but...... Well if I had the money I'd probably buy it too.
