Would that have been a great time to be a racer.
I wonder what the multi carbed engine was near the begining?

thanks for posting Ryan

Gil Stratton (the guy in the cap with flipped up brim) was also in 'The Wild One'. When I was a kid he was the sportscaster on the channel 2 news here in L.A. -stick

hummm... might be your connection. Start the video and then press pause and go fart around for about ten minutes. Come back and press play... that might work.

Very cool, Just when that cop shoes up you can see the car in the back getting all squirrly. I thought for sure he was going to loose it.
