Pardon the shakes. I traveled 3200 miles to see this and I don't carry a tripod on this trek. I've cut out some of the panning, but how often do you get to see these kinds of cars actually racing the way they were intended to be raced?
Enjoy the thoroughbreds!

Hyundai Assembly 9 - Airflow, Fluids, Gauges & Sensors
...and everything you ever wanted to know about the Autometer AutoGage 2391
installation. Stuff that matters.
Caboose loves drill bits, there's no such thing as a clear crayon, and
someone's going to comment on "pull the rubber hose" in 3...2...1...
I'm finishing the whole install in this video. Well... for everything but
the ECU and the Wideband sensor. No spoilers. :P Fine, I just ruined it
for you. The rest of the video's in the edits and will be out soon. Those
videos will be shorter, thank Dionysus!
I explain everything in the video. Trust me.
What's not explained in the video, I'm sure is on Wikipedia. For instance,
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,
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.

The 14th annual Fleet Week Coronado Speed Festival -- "The Race at the
Base" -- is looking forward to a great year. Join thousands of race
enthusiasts and fans in this premier motorsports event saluting our
Race 9 -- 1966-1972 Historic Trans-AM
Last race of the day.
Fleet Week Coronado Speed Festival would like to extend a very special
"thank you" to the drivers of these unique vintage cars that continue to
participate at America's "Race at the Base" year after year. Without these
men and women dedicated to their passion -- racing -- and in honoring the
United States servicemen, the Coronado Speed Festival would not be what it
is today. In fact, without these extraordinary individuals who travel near
and far, this fine event would not exist.
