    To have fun, drive or even race with it, couldn't agree more! Now, if you are talking about opening holes in that car - that is a crime! drive tastefully, is that tastefully??? No it's not

    Lovely video! What a great car, and a great relationship to his car. Hats off for beating the piss out of it!

    Didn't John Fitch also run a Gullwing at Bonneville?

    Bob you are so right, I've watched this video so many times over, the most profound statement ever "your only hear once and you can't take it with you" followed by the ultimate "put it away wet and wear it out", fantastic well done !!

    This is the Gullwing John Fitch drove at Bonneville when he was 87! There is an even more beautiful video than the one above that chronicles that attempt , "A Gullwing at Twilight: The Bonneville Ride of John Fitch". It's a gorgeous, poignant DVD that is one of my all time favorites. If you enjoyed the clip above you'll be blown away by the documentary, and if you don't know who John Fitch was this will fill that gap in your petrol head knowledge. Suffice it to say that he was a true American hero as a WWII fighter pilot, racer, team leader and inventor. You can buy it directly from the DVD's producer, Chris Szwedo at www.szwedo.com . You absolutely will not regret it!

    We pitted next to him at Bonneville. It was fun talking to him. The video doesn't do justice to car. It is absolutely georgeous in every tiny detail.
