    Good innings for a bloke who couldn't stop working with such poor health, and a loss to those with petrol in our veins.

    The man responsible for some of the greatest cars ever.

    Legend gets thrown about all to easily imo but he genuinely deserves 'legend' status!

    Was on TV a few days ago, just finished watching it last night. Great program! The Daytona Coupe really was a beast in its day.

    Turns out my long lost Dad owns a Shelby Mustang. Pity I'm not a petrolhead.

    Perhaps time to make him un-lost? They're fairly valuable, even a non petrol-head can appreciate $250k...

    (I'm joking here btw, just in case it wasn't clear enough)

    Hmmm, yeah, I hadn't thought of that.

    (I'm being sarcastic here btw, just in case it wasn't clear enough)
