I'm 6' 1" and he's short!
He's a bit hard of hearing (go figure after drag racing for years); I had to speak a bit louder, and into his left ear. Very cool guy; took me over to his private garage where he still works on restoring cars. He's a big MOPAR guy, but appreciates the other makes. I happened to have the Mustang Evolution shirt on that day, as he noticed.
He's very active; rides a bike several miles a week, and still works out on a bowflex. I need to be more like that!
He has several museums at the location; tons of antique cars, dating bact to the early turn of the century. Then the drag and funny car museum, and then the engine room. Drool....lots of Smoky Yunick stuff as well.
It was a great honor to meet him.
It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.
