Vintage Car Racing/Crashing
 
This is a Video of a collection of Vintage Car racing crashes. Man these guys had to be a combo of Stupid with a Tone of Balls of Steel mixed in. Men getting tossed for their car's left and right in open wheel car's

Not like today's breed of race car drivers. In todays world cry baby's spin their compitition at 200 MPH hit the wall and then walk back to their 1 Million dollar Air Conditioned RV and watch the rest of the Race via Sat TV.

In this Video you have to have respect for these guys, Every Pass could be your last one. They had cars that could go 100 but they didn't know how to figure out a Roll Bar????

Enjoy

Big D,

That documentory was a brutal reminder of the level of risk those guys took back then. I never knew how involved Jackie Stewart was in making the sport what it is today.

Hey G what's up!

If you watch the Senna Docu (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1424432/) Stewart comes off as a bit of an ass, but my opinion changed after watching "Killer Years".
