“Ford v Ferrari” is Hollywood’s take on 1960s American automobile engineering. Mose Nowland lived it. For 57 years, he built Ford engines for NASCAR, IndyCar and Le Mans racing.
He praises engineers, drivers and others. To those perfecting safety and environmental advances, he said “I marvel at these mechanics today.”
Nowland retired in 2012 and still works five days a week at the Henry Ford and Edsel and Eleanor Ford houses.
“When you’re working in motor sports and everything’s got to be perfect for Sunday, your adrenaline is going 24 hours … I still want to stay busy,” he said.
