1967 Le Mans-winning Ford GT 40 Mk IV (chassis J-5)

From my archives… the original 1967 Le Mans-winning Ford GT 40 Mk IV (chassis J-5) driven to victory by Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt. I would argue this is one of the – if not the #1 – most important American-built race cars in history, and a personal favorite.

Photographed with my iPhone at the 2017 SEMA Show, Las Vegas.

On a visit to Las Vegas many years ago, I photographed this poster of Paul Newman and Lee Marvin covering the wall of an elevator at the #LinqHotel, unaware of who the photographer was. It was this photo that inspired me to become serious about photography – my secret ambition is still to make a photograph this good someday.

Terry Patrick O’Neill was the photographer. He passed away yesterday at the age of 81.
