Wow Ryan nice entry!!! Was that Zora with the white hair and black clothing?

How cool would it be to have one of those Chevrolet/Corvette or Cunningham signs from the pits? Also are the pits just located on normal streets when it's not it use? Like if I were driving in france could I just pull off into that very same location?

That's awesome! I love the solid axle cars and they look so tough with the hard top on and those kidney beans send it over the top! Thanks to the mystery guest.

Great stuff. One of my all time favorite museums was the Briggs Cunningham in Costa Mesa. All of his personal stuff, race cars and all. I understand most of the collection went to Balboa Park.

That was very nice Ryan. We used to drive the snot out of those solid axle Vettes on those old skinny , hard 6-70-15 'Stones. Mostly cuz we didn't know any better, couldn't afford any better and didn't give a rats ass anyway.

Great clip.

Now, this is exactly the kind of stuff I like. Thanks for putting the effort into saving it and posting it up for us, and an even bigger thanks to whoever sent it to Ryan to begin with. Cool stuff.

That is cool someone just mailed you the footage anonymously, but it would really be cool if you could talk to them and ask them just a few questions. How odd is it that they sent it like that?

On a side note I liked the tunes, so I went to Mark Schottinger's website and downloaded the album for free, It's got some cool tracks on it.
