The Original Sting Ray - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • BRIAN HOBAUGH When did you first realize that you loved cars? Maybe it was the time you caught a glimpse of a Ferrari as you were sitting in the back of your parents minivan. Or maybe it happened after watching your older brother do a burnout in his rusted out Camaro. For owner Brian Hobaugh, his love of cars started thanks to his Dad and a certain 1965 Chevrolet Corvette that's been in their family for over 30 years.

Denny Hulme - The Simplest of Things Can Take Away...
Denny Hulme died during the 1992 Tooheys 1000 from Bathurst. He suffered a heart attack at the wheel of his BMW M3, and was pronounced dead at Bathurst Hospital. Denny was one of my heroes, and it was heartbreaking to watch his life end, live on television in front of my eyes. I post this video to remind everyone, that even the simplest of things in a motor vehicle can be life threatening. Make sure your health is good. Make sure you are not tired. Make sure you are concentrating. Keep drugs and alcohol out of your system. Denny had reported on the radio that he wasn't feeling well, but he pushed on - and we lost a champion. Be safe - on track, or on the road.

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.

Ralf Kelleners im McLaren F1 GTR von 1997 steht zwar auf Pole Position muß sich aber zunächst den CanAm Raketen der frühen Siebziger Jahre wie dem McLaren M8F geschlagen geben. Es geht doch nichts über 8,8l Hubraum. Das Rennen gewann Kelleners nach 14Runden mit 16Sekunden Vorsprung vor dem McLaren M8F von Peter Hoffmann, dessen schnellste Rennrunde war nur 1,3Sekunden langsamer als die des F1GTR.
