Yeah, that Larry Fitzgerald, wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals. Besides his affinity for the feel of the pigskin, he likes the sensation of a fat steering wheel between his digits while driving fast, distinctive cars, too. This ’68 is the fourth hot rod that Drew’s Garage in Tempe, Arizona, has built from the ground up for the 6-foot 3-inch, 218 pounder,
a fleet-of-foot alter-ego car that, according to the official release, will see casual use and be driven on special occasions.
Yeah, right. More likely, it’s whenever Larry needs an attitude adjustment and uplift his spirits when he’s away from the gridiron and just put the throttle flat on the floor in the wilds of Arizona.
The tweaked modern engine that’s in it now puts out way more thunder: 630 hp at 6,700 rpm and 600 lb-ft at 4,800 rpm.
