The man was a legend. Didn't he set a world speed record at Bonneville, for a 4 door sedan with 3 passengers in it? went over 200 m.p.h. or some such thing.
He did a lot for the sport of auto racing.

When I was growing up he was one of the biggest names in racing and I found another cool shot of Andy and another legend from 1968.
