This is my Spoiler II Dan Gurney Special. I've owned the car since 1980 and it is the second car I ever owned. It has been off the road for about 20 years, and stored between two locations. The most recent location was the upper floor of a barn, since 1997.
I recently built a new garage at home, and the Cyclone was long overdue to get out of the barn. So on October 20th, 2007 I paid the storage bill, aired up the tires, put a battery in it and turned the key to see what happened. Fearing the worst, I was surprised to hear the old Merc fire up without any difficulty.
I took the above photo just before driving the car out of the barn.
