    I could not believe the film shot from the rear of the camera car, he stayed out there for a lap or two, With Jack and Manny in the front row it was quite a show!

    Nice picking on the guitar Ryan.
     
  6. The roadsters were great and it was good to see it that it was shot with a tripod mounted camera giving steady shots. But for me it was also checking out the infield; the pile of jalopy sedans, the support vehicles, and the people watching.
    And Ryan, the music worked.

    Great movie. Music was cool, probably not what they were listening to at that time, but a great break from some of the BS at work. Doesn't Rathmann live up to his reputation...look at that expression!

    I knew you'd add some tunes to it I for one think it's just that much better with the soundtrack. Glad to know I'm not the only moron that bombards you with PMs. Haha!!!
     
  9. Incredible!

    Now I am daydreaming about where I can "race" my "tub" after I cut it apart and rebuild it into a roundy-rounder.
     
  10. I gotta admit I liked it better with the tunes. :) HRP

    So PURE on so many levels.
     
  13. Multiple threads on this video. But that No. 53 pick up might be Yam Oka. Or Fred Ryness. Or Colby Scroggins. I've seen those names associated with that number.

    Couldn't help but notice the "rollbar" on this one.

    Sometimes, when I see the way folks lived before "safety everything" I am amazed. Totally bad ass video!

  19. Stupid Cool. Words cannot express how far off the cool meter this goes. All I kept thinking throughout the whole video is how neat would it be if we could re-invent that time period in some fashion. Just a dream I suppose. I digged the tunes by the way. It worked.

    Great video! I don't mind the music, but just for kicks, I turned the volume off and instead played "The Aviators" and "Expressions" by Helen Jane Long.....makes it epic!

    I watched this from the thread yesterday. I've watched it a dozen times since....it's UNREAL. This is the coolest, original video I've ever seen. I'm stunned by the quality of it.

    The video just knocked my socks off, I gave it an excellent rating hoping it would lead other folks to it. My early hotrodding was all about round track racing before we were lucky enought to get a drag strip in 57. It was a treat takin off with my dad in one of his cool cars and heading for the dirt track, the other kids at school were pure green with envy when hearing about our racing fun. The spindly ass roll bars on a couple of those roadsters were pretty strange. Thanx so much for the blast experience. ~sololobo~
     
  28. Thanks man. Definitely worse ways to spend seven minutes of my life.
