Default Re: Old Race Cars from the 1930's

Most were big and ugly by todays standards, but pretty amazing engineering and accomplishments for that many years ago. Imagine standing along the course and seeing those cars fly by.

By the way, speaking of land speed records, current Hot Rod Magazine has nice piece on this year's Bonneville trials. George Poteet did something like 435 mph at one point. Originally said all he wanted to do was to get to 400, but now that he's done it. reports saying that now he wants to try for 500 mph! Saw this car at the SEMA show, unbelievable engineering!
