43: The Richard Petty Story

Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @ 69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³
bore 185 mm / 7.28 in
stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm
specific output 9.3 bhp per litre
bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne
Fred Lorenzen's 1966 Ford Factory NASCAR Stock Car
This is the real deal. Owned by Jeff Ray. This car is very documented as the car that Fred Lorenzen drove at the 1966 Daytona 500. The engine is the real Holman and Moody Ford 427 NASCAR race engine of the same vintage.
McCulloch Kart Promotion Movie circa 1961
Digitally restored by http://VintagePowerSport.com - from 16mm film.
This video featuring actor Don Knots, reflects the humor of the time while providing a little insight into the design & manufacture of the short lived line of McCulloch racing karts. While McCulloch manufactured kart racing motors from 1959 to 1977, they only made karts for a couple years during the boom of kart racing. That boom was quickly followed by a Bust, and many kart manufacturers went out of business, this is when McCulloch stopped making karts. McCulloch kart engines were by far the most popular engines used on all karts at the time, and the engine side of the business remained worth while for McCulloch for many years until a combination of new owners and a drop in sales volume marked the end of an era for McCulloch. The Yamaha KT100 and Briggs & Straton 5hp engines quickly replaced the hole left by McCulloch exit from karting.
The engine Don is holding in the beginning of the video would be an MC6 kart engine, based on the date and what details can actually be seen. McCulloch intentionally did not say what model it was, probably because they were releasing new models about every 6-12 months at the time due to the highly competitive environment.
