Paul Newman: He was even cooler than you think


Paul Newman passed away yesterday. Everyone knows about his film career and work for charity, but did you know he finished 2nd in the the 1979 24 Hours of Le Mans? Yeah--and at the age of 70 he became the oldest driver to be part of a winning team in a major sanctioned race, winning the GTS-1 class at the 1995 24 Hours of Daytona.

He was 19th on Nixon's enemies list and number 1 on the list of people way cooler than you.

Yes, but he and Steve Martin are NOT members of the Church!
He is a good man though.
