Mitch's Ford F250 did not have any trouble pulling the boat. He got a lot of looks with this one.

Teddy is named after Gar Wood's famous pair of teddy bears, Bruin and Teddy.

He stole a bear from his wife and put it in his first race boat "Little Leading Lady, in which he won every race he entered." When Mrs. Wood bought another bear, he stole that too. She eventually found her missing bears in "Miss Detroit II," and kindly made them life jackets and bathing caps. He tied the bears to his engines for luck and would never venture out in one of his boats without them. The only race he ever lost was the one in which his son Gar, Jr. gave one of the bears to his opponent. Once someone told Wood that, "No gentleman would ever ride in one of those boats," which prompted him to dress in full formal attire for his next race, which he won, and the teddy bears wore tuxedos too from then on.
