I saw a link to this old story on Duncan’s car shop and it had many interesting details on the future Hall of Famer’s second career.

A couple highlights:

- A Mitsubishi 3000 GT got him hooked

‚ÄúThat was a fast f‚ÄĒkin‚Äô car for the first car to really drive, and it was stick,‚ÄĚ he says. ‚ÄúIt was fun for me, and I‚Äôve always enjoyed that part of it. Nowadays everything is going away from stick, and I hate that part of it. I enjoy learning driving on manual, and that was a hell of a first car just to be able to fool around in.‚ÄĚ

- He saw the movie Cobra and had to have Stallone’s Mercury

‚ÄúAnother one of my favorites is Cobra. That‚Äôs where I got my love for the Merc, where he had the one that had the license plate that said ‚ÄėAWSOM 50.‚Äô‚ÄĚ
