I absolutely loved that. I'd never seen any of it before. The spin dizzies I thought were cool sitting on the shelf but to see them in action is awesome! The El Mirage footage was great, especially the in car footage. It's good to see the hero always gets the girl. Thanks fo that!

I agree about the midget racing. We go to a show in Lima, Ohio and they have a couple days of racing there on the dirt oval. Always some of my favorite stuff.

"these old cars may look like the familiar old jalopy, but there innards have been streamlined and given a shot of motorized adrenaline."
