Our Dan Gurney Spoiler II has spent the last 3 years at the Floyd Garrett Muscle Car Museum in Sevierville TN. Since it is one of our favorite cars it has been a real struggle to leave the car there for that long. While it was there it was spotted by one of the people putting on the Keeneland Concours d’Elegance and as a result we were invited to show it at this years event. That was all the extra motivation we needed to go get “Dan” and bring him back home.
Recently I packed up our trailer with our 428 CJ Ram Air Cale Yarborough Spoiler and headed off to Sevierville. After all, what is a Muscle Car Museum without a Ford products Aero Car? Plus taking a car out of the garage made space for the Spoiler II to come back home to. Think there were problems getting Dan fired up to go home? The car had been sitting in the same spot in the Museum for 3 years. I connected the battery, Jason Thompson poured a little gas down the carb and he fired right up! The battery had never been taken out of the car or charged from when I parked it there 3 years ago. I had poured a little gas additive in the tank before taking it to the Museum. Think the 351 isn’t a good way to go for your car? Think again.
Next time you are in the area make sure to stop in and say hi to newest addition to the Floyd Garrett Muscle Car Museum.
