DON WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES! HERE IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY AMAZING POSTS HE RECEIVED FROM THE FANS.
THANK YOU !
Dear Big Daddy,
I want to wish you a Happy Birthday #86 today. I bought your last "Don Garlits and HIs Cars" autobiography, at the MeCUM auction yesterday. I came back out with a friend and you were gone, sold all your books and got out of the cold.
Your lovely companion had remarked that you would be 86 today and so I hope you are having a warm and cozy dinner somewhere with her. It was a real treat to have met you in your post racing career. I enjoyed your sharing your trip to Viet Nam with Richard Petty in 1971 with me.. Your are a true American Hero, in my opinion.
Again, Happy B/D, Don. You sure as hell don't act or seem like an 86 year old. Congrats on beating the odds and living to a ripe old age.
