Eric Dean’s Temple: A rowdy home-built Ford GT40 | Why I Drive - Ep. 1


“Uncivilized,” he calls it. And yet, in the same breath, Eric Dean says driving his car is “peaceful” and “meditative.” Those terms, as we all know, are not mutually exclusive. There is calm to be found in the storm of a raucous machine. Eric spent three years hand-building a replica of his dream machine, Ford’s iconic GT40. And he didn’t build it to be a show car; he built it to drive. Mission accomplished.

If there’s one simple truth, it’s this: Days you drive that special car are better than days you don’t. Maybe it’s not the fastest, cleanest, or even most reliable car. But it’s yours. And every time you turn the key and hear that engine roar to life, something fantastic happens. Whether it’s hot laps around the local track or a slow Sunday cruise with the family to load up on ice cream, your car is the place you make memories. This is “Why I Drive.”
