Damn, thought that tough bugger would never die.
R.I.P

He made some bad ass machines and made ford able to get into the muscle car game. He helped them tremendously. Could say same for Dodge and the original Viper.

Another article. Man, fuck this really sucks. I dont even know what to say, I read it and was just speechless. Especially being so in love with the automotive world, this is a huge hit.

R.I.P. to one of the greatest, you and your passion will be missed.
