1970 Boss 302 wins at 2013 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion
The car being driven is a 1970 Mustang, which was converted to a tube-chassis IMSA car in 1976. The car was built and driven by Rainer Neuman, and was known as the 'Spectre Car'. It was a local favorite at Sears Point and Laguna Seca in the Seventies. The engine is a 302 block, bored to 366 cu with four Webbers. It produces around 600 hp, and is good for 7500 rpm. It has Hurst-Airheart brakes, and its 15 inch BBS wheels are 17" wide in the rear. A dog box and Ford nine inch rear delivers the power to the wheels. 6A is the IMSA GT 1973 to 1982 group. This year they had 46 cars in the group. The group features some fabulous cars: BMW M1 Procars and CSL Batmobiles, twin-turbo Porsche 935s, and Dekon Monzas. Not to mention some great drivers: Bruce Canepa in the very fast #12 Porsche, Ken Epsman in the Budweiser Dekon Monza, and this year Adam Carolla drove his Paul Newman zx300 turbo.





1969 Penske Trans-Am Camaro
The 1969 Sunoco Camaro championship winning car. Driven by Mark Donohue the entire 1969 Trans-Am Season. It won six races and finished second in another two. The sister car, driven by Ronnie Bucknum finished 3rd in the Championship, and was later destroyed by an earthquake in Mexico.





Trans Am Paddock '66-'72 Sights & Sounds
Happy July 4th! If you have speakers plugged into your computer, turn it up. Hopefully you have a subwoofer, too! This footage is me walking through Vic Edelbrock's collection of vintage Trans-Am racecars as they're being prepared for the Group 7A races and enjoying the sights and sounds... The Trans-Am Series is an automobile racing series which was created in 1966 by Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). This was the proving ground for all American manufacturers to compete with race-modified production cars. It ran until 1972 when at the height of Richard Nixon's incompetence dealing with OPEC, we had a gas shortage which was compounded by an embargo levied against us. Syria, Egypt and Tunisia didn't really like Nixon re-feuling their arch-enemy, Israel. Rather than address the shortage, the auto industry was heavily regulated to curb consumption. Further restrictions placed on the oil industry by an other rocket surgeon, Jimmy Carter, left us unable to further develop our own oil supplies which cemented these changes to the auto industry. These events changed muscle cars as we knew them into complete turds for over a decade while US auto makers struggled with the regulations and re-learned how to produce decent cars again... but for the "pony cars", it was the beginning of the end. The oil embargo of 1973 changed the shape of not only the auto industry, but all forms of auto racing to follow. You used to be able to afford these cars. I remember when... back when I was in high school... But it's 2010 now. This race celebrates all the classic cars you've dreamed of owning or being seen in. These things auction in the 6+ figures now (because of their race history). Enjoy this parade of '60's and early '70's model Ford Mustangs, Chevrolet Camaros, Plymouth Barracudas, Mercury Cougars, AMC Javelins, Pontiac Firebirds, and Dodge Challengers. This event required that they be in their original race condition in order to run with the Group 7A cars, so the contest to follow is all about how much compression these 40+ year old cars have left, and who's driving it. These beauties have been meticulously preserved by the best collectors, engineers and mechanics in the industry. I hope you guys can appreciate it because this is off my normal subject material. I just wanted to change things up and post something American on Independence day. This one's for the Veterans.
