Oh Snap!!
At his age & with the life he's lived it's amazing he is still rockin!

My closest brush with celebrity probably won't register on many peoples radar but I got to talk to Dan Gurney for about an hour during practice at an IMSA race in Topeka in 1989.
We watched all the GTP cars go through different turns to see who had the best setup.
He was in a good & chatty mood because his Toyotas were smokin fast!

For those that don't know Gurney drove Formula 1 cars for Ferrari, BRM, Porsche, Lotus, Brabham, Eagle & McLaren & was the only F1 driver to win a race in a car of his own design. He won the Belgium Grand Prix at Spa in 1967 in the Gurney Eagle.
Keith Richards is cool but Dan Gurney is one of my heroes!!
