That sums it up succinctly, Tony.  And accurately.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

So is Damon now a car guy?

 Our local paper has a Cineplex magazine on Saturdays, in it there is a small bit about the film (opens here, Toronto, Canada

 November 15th.), they say "prickly British race driver Ken Miles"  Any one know what his personality was like ?  I know he was

 pissed after Le Mans '66.

To us he was a man's man, spoke what was on his mind. Probably not to many people liked him back then, but today is understood and revered.

Look at that confident, sarcastic smile...you know I'm right, admit it...

Definitely a man's man, Tony.
Just look at this quote I found on the site you posted.  Very profound.

“You know, I’d rather die in a racing car than get eaten up by cancer”- Ken Miles

Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past

Tony, thanks for the link, and deathsled for you comment, I knew a bit about Miles, was lucky to see him race up here in Canada,   8)  at Mosport a number of times, Cobra, Cooper King Cobra, Tiger, he even drove a Porsche 906 here in'66.

I missed out.  I was only three years old at the time.  I wish I could have seen Miles race live.  Especially the flying Mustang at the first race in Texas.  I have Bill Neal's lithographs of the flying GT 350 both signed by CS.  Fond memories of meeting THE MAN back in the 90s.  But hey, born in 1963, that was a good year for the Cobra, right?
