In a previous article we told you a story provided by one of our readers and his personal experiences while attending a 1968 Driveaway Cyclone GT 500 event. That story generated a follow up from another reader, John Drilling.
It seems John, like many of us, scans eBay for interesting items for sale. Sometimes the finds are not much to get excited about and then there are the big scores we dream about. John recently purchased a Driveaway Jacket on the auction site. He didn’t say what he paid for it but from the pictures it looks like a great find.
These photos provide the best images I have seen of what the actual jackets looked like. They are very vintage correct and would make a great conversation piece at any Ford/Mercury event. One of these would also make a great wall hanging in any Blue Oval lovers Man Cave.
If you have any similar stories or memorabilia from an official event please send me some photos and information so it can be shared with the other enthusiasts on this site. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
