Roadsters on a speedway. I just got to say I don't believe it gets much better than that. The cars just sounded so different 60 years ago. Makes me all quivery, and just a little jeaeous.

Thanks Friend

I don't think it is the engine that is broke. maybe you are just too broke to make it sound like that.

I still want to stuff an Offy in a '27 roadster someday, I know it will never happen but a sound bite like this inspires me to do something to become wealthy so I can do something as obscene as that.

That was a flashback for sure. Remember when the Indy 500 was on the radio on Memorial Day Monday and they'd follow the leader around the track through all the turns on the final lap? Back before rear engines and ground effects and computers.
