I can appreciate that it is the most complete video I have ever seen of old school drag racing (I am 29). Interesting to see.

That was back in the days when racing was more affordable, now days its money rules.
It even ended with some Simon and Garfunkel. (? on spelling)

That is a great video! Well thought out, and the music, what can ya say!

I too liked the link to the hard leaving Camaro, was pretty neat and I'm sure it would have been better if the car went straight and another gear or two could have been found!

Thanks for posting, Dave.
