Wayne Goes Racing

Dec 02, 2008 on VELOCITY at 10:00 PM


In the film War of the Roses, Michael Douglas owned a 1960 Morgan +4 Roadster which his wife spitefully ran over and crushed. After filming wrapped, a Connecticut man bought the wrecked car from the film production company and hired master car restor... (more)er Wayne to restore it to top condition. His dream was to go vintage racing with the Morgan, but tragically, two weeks before he was to race it he had a heart attack and died. Shortly thereafter, his wife rolled the car into their barn and closed the doors. Now, more than fifteen year later, Wayne offers to buy the Morgan in all its dusty glory. Wayne and his team restore the car to racing condition and honor the man's memory by doing what he could not... Fulfill his dream of racing the Morgan.
