THE "CHEETAH" BURNOUT-BAG
Destroy vs. Beauty is an intentional breach of style.
Damaged materials are combined with the finest leather.
„HANDCRAFTED IN GERMANY, DESTROY WORLDWIDE"
Cheetah Race Car
Born in the '60s, and re-born in recent years; like it's namesake on the
African Savanna, this race car is fast, agile, and very beautiful, and the
example featured here (one of only a half-dozen still run on the track) is
surly one of, if not the finest example out there. I came across this rare
beast over the Labor Day weekend at the new Inde MotorSports Ranch track
near Wilcox, AZ. Here's a link to another very good video featuring this
beautiful car at the Inde MotorSports Ranch race track (a 2.75 mi, 21-turn
natural terrian road course in the high desert of south-central Arizona):

Chaparral 2J @ 2005 Monterey Historics
Demonstration laps of the Chaparral 2J driven by Vic Elford during the 2005
Monterey Historics at Laguna Seca. The 2J had two fans at the rear driven
by a snowmobile engine to evacuate air from beneath the car, sucking the
car to the road. In the video you can hear the snowmobile engine over the
bass note of the Chevy V8. Phil Hill & Jim Hall are driving two of the

1965 Bill Thomas CHEETAH International Car Shipping
Bill Thomas Motors built the Cheetah to be Chevrolets answer to the Shelby
Cobra. In the early 60s, the indy tracks were being dominated by the Cobra
289 and the Ferrari 250 GTO. With Corvette suspension and full support from
Chevrolet, the Cheetah hit the race tracks in 1963.

Boasting a 520 hp Chevy small-block V-8, the Cheetah had incredible lateral
acceleration and could run a quarter mile in 10 seconds.
Only 16 to 23 Cheetahs were fully produced, and many of those originals
still make appearances in vintage races around the country. BTM, a
different company with the full blessing of Bill Thomas, now builds a
limited number of Cheetahs each year. These are more than just $100K
replicas. Built from the original plans with the finest of Corvette
performance parts, these Cheetahs are ready to hit the track again.
