((katie boer)) >> gil ben-kely was passionate. he loved life and he lived it with purpose. and more than anything--he loved his family, fast cars and elvis. ((katie boer)) indy cars... formula-1... even exotic luxory vehicles... ((nat pop of race car on speed vegas track )) gil ben-kely was a driver of anything on wheels. ((s - 03:47 he just lives and breathes fuel :49 ... n: we always say that fuel runs through his veins :53 ---- stitch --- :02 like i think theres more of that then theres actually blood :05 )) his two children...nathal ie and shon say their father made living life look easy. from his office...to the tool box... even the cement floor in his garage... ben-kely's life was a tribute to cars--especially ferraris.
