"I'd like to be remembered as a guy who tried - who tried to be part of his times, tried to help people communicate with one another, tried to find some decency in his own life, tried to extend himself as a human being. Someone who isn't complacent, who doesn't cop out."

They were going to look real cool!
Newman loves his white "camp car" suit, so he had been wearing it during all of the practices, saving the new suit and a new pair of driving shoes for the race. So, now it was time to pose for photos. I tell Paul that he needs to put on his new gear. Paul came out of the trailer and his voice seemed a little higher than normal. Somehow, measurements must have gotten mixed up because I think Paul got Billy Barty's suit. There was no way Paul was zipping the suit past his manhood! So, now he puts his "camp car" suit back on and comes out with his new driving shoes. We noticed a stumble in his stride. He looked at me and said "how can I make these things fit?" (Now remember, we're about to start a 24 hour race).
