    Not much has changed in 50 years huh, up and coming hot rodders or greybeards, they just can't leave S#/T alone. Remember when you painted your first model car, IF it turned out OK you could hardly wait for the paint to dry before you put the body on.

    The last couple of seconds on this clip could be used as advertising, "Look how safe our car is! On impact, the door springs open and the driver is thrown clear of the wreckage!"

    Back in wayback time machine again today. Today's trip is back to 1963 and the Golden State 400. You will see a lot of drivers names that go on to big things. This is back in the day where you could still tell the car make just in a glance and a lot of different brands racing.

    I would love to see someone build the Model T coupe in the 3 in 1 photo.
    Heavy chop, and a Latham supercharged Lincoln engine, if I remember correctly.
    Killer!!!
