How fast do you want to go?
This drawing was sent to me by motorsports artist Paul Chenard via our good friends over at THE GARAGE. Much of Paul's works are right up my alley as you will see. This excellent drawing is Ken Miles number 98 B production 1965 GT350. Thanks for thinking of us Paul and hopefully we'll be seeing one of Lucky some day ahead.
I couldn't help but chuckle as I read this morning's news topics while having my coffee. While I read the list I kept asking myself, "If these people REALLY want to go fast why don't they just sign up for the La Carrera Panamericana. After all, it's just across the border and there is no limit with some cars doing in excess of 190 miles per hour.
