    Yeah.

    My late friend "Flat Top" Fred used to say that as well.

    It's amazing how much the cars leaned in the corners back in the day.

    Boy, you're pretty observant.

    You're right.

    They just don't build corners like that anymore.

    No, they still build corners like that. But they are for Tesla and Smartcars only.

    Reposted from another thread (here), with permission from Morris, as it relates to this thread. Great add, thank you Morris. At least this photo will be viewed and appreciated by many other Cobra enthusiasts in years to come, even when some of us are no longer around...

    Thought you's like it.... I raced with Mac in my 280Z..... we had some great races ....except everytime I'd go to pass him .... he'd cut the apex to much and through rocks up and brake my windshield..... then I'd really pass him and do the same .... but he had no windshield.... we always had a good time at StLouis...

    It's amazing what they accomplished with narrow wire wheels and skinny tires.

    tipped a little extra for effect I guess, unless they build some wanky scaffolding over there.

    It's the banking at Monza which is quite steep. But yes it does look like the photographer tilted his camera to exaggerate the effect.
