THE LUCKY AMERICAN
The latest issue of Excellence Magazine (204) carries a story of mine on the 1965 Lucky Lager 911 and the early racing career of driver Bruce O’Neil.
Bruce is certainly “The Lucky American” when it comes to racing the early 911 in Europe in 1967. His was a unique experience that would be very hard (if impossible) to repeat. Racing has changed so much.
It was an honor to work with Bruce O’Neil, Walt Maas, and Ed Matsuishi. These guys all feel the same way about this vintage racing 911. It’s a real warhorse, and I’m glad to have had the opportunity to document it’s history accurately for the first time. Thanks to John Thornton, Pete Stout, and John Kirikos for their amazing contributions in presenting this piece.
