His name is John, Rennlist name John D.

A vey nice guy. He hasn't owned it for a few years now. He sold it to Internet Brands but is still fairly active on there and still a Mod or Admin or something like that.

For me it would be a dark grey '66 or '67 SWB, the same color as the '70S Steve McQueen drove in the opening sequence of LeMans.* As a driver, I'm somewhat of a piker. S or no, really wouldn't matter.



*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.
