Walt Hane Interview - 5R103: 1965 1966 racing season
« on: November 09, 2021, 10:23:50 AM »
Here is a video I just converted from VHS to digital and then uploaded it to Youtube for your viewing pleasure.  :-)  This came from the collection of the late Hans Pedersen and from Rick Kopec before Hans. 

Walt answers a list of questions and responds to what is going on in the film.  This is an amazing interview and probably one of the most authentic I have seen.  The film itself is amazing.  The quality is not perfect, but what is here makes up for the imperfections.   When have we seen 5R099 before & after it crashed?  Great footage here.

Link to the video: https://youtu.be/EZ7CLJ6IJ-E

Enjoy.

If you have read the book "Racing to Riverside: Untold Story of Walt Hane" then this video puts this book to life.  A great book to go along with this interview.

Watching now and gave you a thumbs up on the YouTube.  Thank you for sharing.  Of note:  Cat walking across the hood and door edge, people sittin' on the fender.  Try that today with these cars. Lol!
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

"And that was a 427 Vette and a Cobra I just lapped."  Ka boom!  The Shelby Mustangs were incredible underdogs.

I bought this book and read it.  I can recommend it A plus.
