    I stumbled on a nice article about the legendary F1 driver Gilles Villeneuve and his love for Mustangs and Fords in general.
    I hope you enjoy it before it gets buried in some faraway off topic section:

    If you don't know who Villeneuve was, watch this YouTube clip:



    Nothing to do with the Shelby, other than the fact that there is no doubt in my mind that if he were alive today he'd be the proud owner of a GT350 and you could find him at a track near you beating the car to within an inch of its life, until it begged for mercy.

    Salut Gilles, now I'll be thinking of you every time I climb into my GT350.

    I saw Gilles race in Formula Ford at the Player's Pacific. I don't remember the year, but the 70's somewhere. He had a car problem and DNF'd, as I recall.
