Default Farewell, Teddy Mayer (and Big-Block Salutes...)

As part of the memorial service for Teddy Mayer (one of the co-founders of McLaren Racing) this past weekend, Peter Revson's 1971 M8F Can-Am car was brought in and fired up as a final salute. Those of us using this engine (almost all of us...) owe a debt to the guys that pioneered the development of this beast. I can't imagine dealing with one in a 1400 pound car like this one. It practically jumped off the ground when the throttle was blipped.

Farewell, Teddy - and Thanks!
