For the last 6 months or so, west coast contributor to The Garage, Gary Faules has been hard at work preparing his GT-350R clone, Lucky, for the 2007 running of La Carrera Panamerica. Earlier this week, Lucky breathed in some fresh air and fuel and burst to life with a roar and a belch of fire. Team California’s Best was kind enough to catch this on video to share with the world.
Here in the east, I too have been hard at work on a project related to The Garage. While this project is still somewhat secret, today was an important milestone and has been quite stressful. A few moments ago, an employee asked what was going on as I had a huge grin on my face. I told her that Lucky was alive and had just brightened the rest of my day!
Now, let your day be brightened by the sounds of a 503 hp Ford 289.
