    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.

    Hahaha!!!! Seriously!!! Anyone have some specs on that Red car with the injected Chevy V8? I gotta know what's going on inside that engine!!! It sounds so rad when it's ripping across the track.

    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.

    I think a set of Firestone Indy specials and Halibrands would look sick on my project. Hmmmm.... Where are they getting those anyway? Coker?

    Wow, Chills, just love the sound of a "real" engine at full song! As affective as Beethoven. (No not the damn dog)

    Coker makes firestone Indy tires. Two sizes and they don't even nibble on your ear before they break it of in ya (as my friend Del says) at $378 a tire!!! Haha worth every penny though!!!

    With the exception of Top Fuel and todays Funnycars,the sounds that really get me are from the movies,Grind Prix and LeMans. I always turn it up when I watch those two.
    Great thread,Ryan...

    To so many here, except for the Chevy, these are new sounds. To me they are haunting memories.The only thing lacking was the voice of Sid Collins.

    I got some low rez video from my still camera at the Miller Meet some years back. The sound comes through pretty good.

    Just click the picture to go to the video:

    This Miller wasn't pushing it too hard, but the gear/supercharger whine is unique.
