Highlights of in car video during the 2009 Lime rock vintage festival. This event is held every Labor day weekend and is a must visit event for any sports car enthusiast. Lime rock park is a special place. I think of this race track as being the birthplace of road racing in America, along with Watkins Glenn and Bridgehampton.
Sorry about the chickens at the end. Somehow it does not seem right that a racing video should end with chickens, but oh well, that is the way it turned out.

A Girl and her Race Car- Bugeye Vintage Race Footage
A short film featuring Cana and her race car taking a nice Sunday drive, turning some 1:26 laps at Blackhawk Farms Raceway with the VSCDA. It is a heart warming tale, brilliantly shot and edited. We fully suspect invitations to Sundance and Cannes to be forthcoming.

Pre-raceTrans-am cars at 2006 Limerock park Vintage Festival
A short video clip I took with my digital camera. The picture may be grainy, and the sound will never be replicated through any microphone. I swear, these were the loudest cars I've ever heard, and they're not only heard, but felt. Crank up the volume!
Triumph GT6 MK3 vintage race car part 1
A tour of the GT6 race car engine bay , part 1. Visit http://www.austinhealeywood.com/brakelines.html for information on the copper nickel brake line kits that I mentioned in the video. I will be adding part 2 of this video next week.
My friend and I built this vintage race car over the course of several years. It may have been raced in Canada when it was new, but I have very little information about it's history.
The engine was built to be reliable so that we could sort out the car on track. It could certainly make more power by increasing the compression ratio and doing a few other things. It has been very reliable so far. I drive a street GT6 and I can tell you that there is no comparison between the stock engine and this one. This engine revs very freely and is still making power up to the rev limiter (7000 RPM). This is due to all of the work done on the head, the Exhaust header and the weber carb setup.

Limerock Vintage Race Festival & Whopping Sunday Car Show 2010
This annual event is fantastic, and not dominated by old Corvettes although my prior coverage tends to favor my home team of 1953-1982 Corvettes, I still do appreciate many other marques and models from a to z. At this event there are more Ferrari's than Corvettes or any other make but kit Cobras. Included are Bugatti, Norton, Kurtis, Ford, Alfa, Porsche, McLaren, Allard, Indy, Jaguar, MG, Cooper, Devin, Aston, Mercury, Nash, Rolls, Birdcage Maserati, Caddy, BMW, from V12's to 2 cylinder Morgans, Chararral, Stutz, L88, Woodys, Zora & Yura's Ardun heads. It's just mind boggling the variety, but the number of different Ferrari's is outstanding. I don't recall seeing John Fitch in his Phoenix as is usual.
