The Greatest (Car Guy) Story Ever Told!


Recommended Posts

I think this may be the single greatest piece of automotive journalism I have ever read.
(Yes, I have read and loved David E. Davis Jr's famous "Turn Your Hymnals to 2002", about the BMW 2002. That is Number Two on my list. http://baurspotting.blogspot.com/2012/04/1968-bmw-2002-turn-your-hymnals-to.html )
It is Denis 'Jenks' Jenkinson's first-hand account of his experience as the navigator in the Mercedes 300SLR driven to record-setting victory in the 1955 Mille Miglia by Stirling Moss. Mille Miglia: 1000 miles over normal Italian roads, through towns and cities, averaging over 97 mph, and cruising large sections at 170mph!
Sound pretty incredible? It IS incredible! Do yourself a favor: stop whatever else you are doing, and read this account. You can thank me later. wink.gif
