RACER: Robin Miller with Dan Gurney
Dan Gurney was shocked, moved to tears and then reflected on how proud he still was almost 50 years later. Those were his reactions after son Justin presented him with the best birthday present ever on Monday -- his restored 1967 Eagle that he qualified in the middle of the front row at Indianapolis. "One of my favorites," said the 84-year-old legend on Wednesday while sharing stories with Parnelli Jones and Dario Franchitti as they admired the car at the All-America Racing shop in Santa Ana, Ca. "I don't think I've seen it since 1967 and it looks so good and brings back so many memories." Franchitti flew into Long Beach for this weekend's IndyCar race and drove right to AAR to see two of his heroes and a classic car. "What a day, I wish it wouldn't have ended," said the three-time Indy 500 winner whose appreciation and knowledge of history isn't lost on two of the all-time greats. "I think it's great that Dario cares so much about history and old guys like Dan and I," said the 1963 Indy winner.

Robin Miller on Dan Gurney
From sports cars to Formula One in 23 races, the only man to ever build and drive his own F1 car to victory and a versatile star who won in Indy cars, Can-Am, NASCAR, F1 and sports cars, Dan Gurney's legacy extends way beyond his accomplishments behind the wheel. His All-American Racers helped changed the face of IndyCar racing with its Eagles, he helped accelerate the aerodynamic age with his "Gurney flap," his White Paper was the genesis of CART and IndyCar's most successful era and his clout made the Long Beach Grand Prix a reality. The Big Eagle is America's most influential racer and, at 85, is still sharp with his observations and memories. RACER's Robin Miller says the best present in the world is talking to Gurney on the phone twice a month and listening to stories about his amazing life.
