There's a companion article in this month's PRI (Performance Racing Industry) magazine. Great article and a bit of info not covered in the video, but the video lets you see The Greek's personality a bit better. I'd drive to Chicago (about 6 Hours) in a heartbeat to buy him lunch and have him just tell some old stories.

He's born in 1931 so 90 yo this year, a living proof that drag racing keeps you young!
