Man, that track looks nothing like it does today! And the cars..... they put the STOCK in "stock car". I believe I saw a passenger door opened on one of the wrecked cars. Real honest to goodness "door slammers". :thumbsup:
The track WAS in fact designed for 200 MPH, as the winged wonders of 1970 proved
What I find interesting is the pace car is a 60 Buick and the cars I could spot right off are 53 and 55 Fords, 55 and 57 Chevys, 53 Studebaker and a 40s something. The stock cars were recognizable as those seen on the streets and in some cases were pushing 20 years of age. Compare that with today when you see 3-5 different models that all look exactly alike except for the painted on "grilles" and due to the sponsorship decals cannot be distinguished from each other anyway.
