As our regular readers know, retired underground cross country rally guru Alex Roy has become a close part of the circle here in The Garage. While many may feel that some of the risks Roy has taken, it is impossible to deny that the Cannonball/Gumball legacy has become part of the fabric of North American automotive culture. No matter how irresponsible you may find some of this stuff, there is no avoiding the fact that Roy has been part of something seriously cool.
Even cooler, is that Roy is David Letterman’s guest tonight on the Late Show for no reason other than he is the modern gearhead’s biggest hero. Perhaps anti-hero might be a more fitting term. No matter, as Roy will representing the automotive fraternity in style this evening.
Anyone care to guess which leather he’ll be wearing?
