1972 Porsche 917/10 Road Test
How do you test rebuilt turbos on a 1000
million dollar, championship winning Can-Am race car? Road test, of course.
Fast forward to 5:23 for the freeway section. Apologies for the foggy lens
as the video progresses.
1,580HP Porsche 917/30 Sound
I have filmed the most powerful racecar of all time, the Porsche 917/30 Can
Am, a twin turbo flat 12 engine monster,
just look at it fly past making a brilliant sound! This car has an
unbelievable top speed of 260MPH and 0-60mph of 1.9 seconds, unbelievable!
Also in this video is the Porsche 936 which Jacky Ickx raced at Le Mans 3

Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!
The Cars of Mark Donohue
Some of the cars that Mark Donohue made famous. Included in the video are
several of his Trans Am Camaro's, his Championship Trans
Am Javelin, and the last car he ever won a race in, his IROC Porsche 911.
Filmed the Mark Donohue Reunion at Road America during the Kohler
International Challenge with Brian Redman, July 15, 2010.
