I’ll make a strong bet on Rossi - before the race is over 

Mario Andretti and his investors have a 51% controlling interest in the fuel delivery company I work for. Since January, they have dropped $2 million on new trucks. Winning comes natural for some.

Mario Gabriele Andretti (born February 28, 1940) is an Italian-born American former racing driver, one of the most successful Americans in the history of the sport.[1] He is one of only two drivers to have won races in Formula One, IndyCar, World Sportscar Championship, and NASCAR (the other being Dan Gurney). He also won races in midget cars and sprint cars.[citation needed]

During his career, Andretti won the 1978 Formula One World Championship, four IndyCar titles (three under USAC-sanctioning, one under CART), and IROC VI. To date, he remains the only driver ever to win the Indianapolis 500 (1969), Daytona 500 (1967) and the Formula One World Championship, and, along with Juan Pablo Montoya, the only driver to have won a race in the NASCAR Cup Series, Formula One, and an Indianapolis 500. No American has won a Formula One race since Andretti's victory at the 1978 Dutch Grand Prix.[2] Andretti had 109 career wins on major circuits.[3]

Andretti had a long career in racing. He was the only person to be named United States Driver of the Year in three decades (1967, 1978, and 1984).[4] He was also one of only three drivers to have won major races on road courses, paved ovals, and dirt tracks in one season, a feat that he accomplished four times.[4] With his final IndyCar win in April 1993, Andretti became the first driver to have won IndyCar races in four different decades[5] and the first to win automobile races of any kind in five.[4]

im a fastback 69 mustang guy...but that corvette is the sexiest car ever to exist...plain and simple...


I am into anything with wheels.


I had a friend that was in Vietnam in 1968 and when he came home he bought a new Black on Green 4 on the floor / 351 Mach One.


The 390 (or was it a 428) with a Shaker was like $800 more. (Can you FKn believe that ?)


I was like 14 and can still remember him going from 0-60 in seconds.


Here is the color he had minus the yellow stripe and he had different factory rims. (This Mach One has one of the larger motors.)


Thank you and God Bless !
