    Historic Trans Am Race

    Now this was my type of racing and I enjoyed it. The cars weren't as fast nor did they handle as well as today million dollar cars, but they were fun to drive and a lot cheaper to work on. And I didn't have to try to read what name was on the car to know what kind it was.

    My spelling gets worse all of the time. I will have to start proof reading my posts before and after I post them.

    Trans Am and IMSA were the best racing around at the time.

    Well Ted you are correct and now Nomad is correct with his three classes comment.

    And I always loved to see what Jim Hall would come up with next.

    I always suspected that Nomad was clairvoyant. You know, he is "special".

    Yup, I sure miss the days of racing when the sanctioning bodies allowed a little innovative thinking like Hall's Chaparral cars. Seems that now days no matter what type of racing it is, the cars are pretty much all identical.
