NEW - EXCLUSIVE KEN MILES T- SHIRTS

Available from the Ken Miles Page

Miles, McLaren, Amon, both Hills, Stewart, Gurney, AJ et al were my heroes in the old days and they all drove this kind of a car, if not this very one and i wanted to experience what they had experienced and i didn’t know any other way of doing it, except by trying to build a car like they drove.
After building the car, i discovered after driving it and racing it several times, that they are not only heroes they were Supermen. To drive at high speeds for the distances that they did, is an absolute miracle
