No, this is not a sign of things to come, this was Bonneville 1968. "Danny Eames was working for Autolite and Ford wouldn't let him drive the car because he was too valuable to them, in case something happened. Eames would come into Miller's shop all the time when I worked there and they wanted me to drive it. They even paid me to drive the damn thing, plus they gave me a 427 SOHC engine. I set a record for electric cars of 138.862 mph", Jerry says.
