Blackwell turned his keys over to the museum in Bowling Green, Ky., earlier this month, calling it a "fabulous car, no complaints here." The video above from the museum shows how surprisingly good the Corvette looks, considering all the places it's been.
"Henry Ford II's personal dominance of the company gave it a different character, certainly different from other publicly owned companies in the automobile game," Miller said in 2003. "GM and Chrysler were not that way. You knew who the boss was. There were no palace politics with anyone trying to take over."

Car battery prices vary, and can cost from around £60 fitted, although models fitted with stop-start systems need a heavier duty battery that can cost more than £100, depending on the size, type and the electrical current produced. There are dozens of combinations on offer, so make sure you get the correct one for your car.
Until a relatively short time ago, Faraday Future was principally funded by Chinese billionaire Jia Yueting, whose main business is the internet and telecom giant LeEco. Yueting's businesses kept Faraday afloat up until this spring, when unpaid loan payments forced a court in China to freeze some $182 million in assets. As this source of cash dried up, Faraday Future embarked on a cash-raising campaign this spring, seeking to attract new investors mostly by publishing videos of the FF91 prototype. The startup was also forced to drop plans for a $1 billion factory just outside of Las Vegas and sought out a smaller existing facility in California with some effort. The halt of LeEco funding has also forced Faraday to place its Formula E team into hibernation, and to whittle down a planned lineup of seven electric models to just two.
This powertrain is available for as little as $24,460, and Honda asks $34,690 for the top-spec 1.5T Touring, still a solid value for such a fully realized and useful machine. But yeah, save up a few bucks and get the 2.0T if you can. And we’d get the manual transmission, too.
“WRC 7” has three game modes: solo, which includes the career mode, multiplayer and challenge, where new online events appear. I jumped into career mode with the Ford team and promptly finished seventh out of 10. That was with a bunch of respawns, which put you back on the track no matter where you’re at, with a seven- or nine-second penalty, depending on if you get stuck on a tree, or if the game senses you’ve committed suicide off a cliff. A respawn is better than the alternative.
Given that the price gap between the Arona and Ateca is a mere £2000, however, expect the new SUV to have a starting price of around £21,000. That would make the car even cheaper than the Kodiaq, which has a price tag of £22,190.
