1969 Trans Am Road Racing Footage  


You have to check out this video on YouTube. It's a short film that includes footage of the 1969 Trans Am season. You've got stock bodied Camaros, Firebirds, Mustangs, even a Javelin. Check out how much some of these cars slide through the corners. Thanks to for mentioning the video first.

One thing probably no one noticed but me is a quick shot of what I believe is a 1968 Ford Torino Squire Wagon in the exact color and wood paneling as the one my parents bought in 1968. This is the 1968 Torino wagon I drove backwards out of my parents' driveway and over the neighbor's fence when I was 4 years old. This is the car that I used to smoke cigarettes in to stay out of the rain. This is the car that I took the liberty of teaching myself to drive in way before I got my license.

I saw this video on The Auto Prophet blog and thought is was pretty cool. Not practical, definitely not safe, but cool. I need to buy a welder.
