Way back in the 70's I turned wrenches on porsche and audi cars. It was a fun time. None were like this though... from the video description: 

This beauty is powered by a normally aspirated, air-cooled Porsche flat-six engine developed by Williams Advanced Engineering to give 500bhp at a mind blowing 9000rpm!!

This is one of my favorite pieces of race car porn. Put on the headphones and turn it up. 299 cubic inches of Detroit V8.

He really winds this puppy up...

 

And as much as I am a Ford man... I really enjoyed the looks and performance of American Motors..

 

And I definitely remember these days... and good old Andy G.

Slap a powerful engine into a Volkswagen bug and you have still one of the ugliest cars on the road.  I dunno why those wide curves of the frame look so ugly to me.  I was happy to see Volkswagen buses age and rust and eventually hit the compactor each year, but now I hear they're bringing those eye soars back too.  If anyone ever asked me if I could fire an spg at something, what would it be, it would definitely be a Volkswagen bus.

Most his shifts into fourth gear are 7800 rpm, close to 8000rpm. Good chase on the red Vette... but then later he's running nearly 8k IN fourth. 

Glad you liked the video...

The lowest I saw was 4500 in second in traffic otherwise it was 5500 - 6000 and the highest was 8500 in forth. If I remember correctly the all of the Trans Am V-8's in race trim had a power band in the 6k - 8k range which is pretty much where he kept it. I liked how he looks where he wants to go.

They always said back in the day look where you want to go down the track and the body will make it happen. Trans Am Boss 302 really is my all-time favorite car... followed closely by the GT40.

True but most owners/drivers of these classic racers are not professional drivers so I found that impressive. His driving was awesome with only a couple of bobbles and those were mostly because of traffic.

Actually the official title was Ford GT, they never trademarked GT40. I saw the new Ford GT on MotorWeek over the weekend, only a mere $450k. :Smile_veryhappy:
