Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

Ah yes, the days when you drag raced a powerful car on wire wheels.  With slicks, I wonder how many guys sheared off some spokes?

I guess it doesn't matter much but I'd think it was more just flat out being cheap by Harr not wanting to put a set of Halabrands on the car rather then making a statement? Although, lot's of times in those days the Ford guys were doing little things just to piss of the Chevy guys.

The "Hawk" was "infamous" for flipping them the 'bird. Racing then was not a gentlemen's sport. I'm sure that more then one time linguini got thrown at the Ferrari team? You didn't walk anywhere near the pits for concerns for personal safety. Certainly "you" likely could hear virbality aimed at questioning your manhood or virility?

The "work/release" program had not been suggested yet and I wonder if it was that some of the crew still had not been identified and apprehended? I guess it kept them off the streets for a while? You had to be there to understand.  ;)

That's ok. As long as there is no tomato sauce. That stains. That would wreck my white Levi's!
