I'm sure this was probably previously posted, but it's too cool not to look at again.

Great video. Life lessons to be learned here about perseverance for one.
"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"

That is a GREAT story I never heard about. What I really would have liked even better in the story was when the FERRARI driver was flashing his lights incessantly at DAN lap after lap and then DAN pulled over and the FERRARI pulled off the track behind him and waited? The story line would have been very different if gentleman DANS team mate was driving that stint of the race, The man that that wants to be remembered as ONE TOUGH TEXAN..... and played a game of smash mouth with him! Then as now FOYT has little room for BULLSH!t like that! ;D
