Those cars forty years newer than mine were not exactly pulling away much.

It's amazing what a suction cup mount and duct tape can do. It held up at over 100 mph for forty minutes.

OH MAN does that look like fun! I take it these were paced laps. What kind of safety equipment was required? I know the pro touring events require a roll bar in a convertible. I can't get over how much fun that looks like. Are you running the Magnums and street tires on the track?

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

It was not a pace lap per say but the 1st lap of every session it takes a while to sort out. I was not pushing it to the limit that lap but it does take a lot more effort to stay on the racing line than it does driving a newer BMW or just about any new car. No special safety equipment is required, just a good helmet, shoulder harness and roll the windows down. I have 225/60/15 KUMHO's on the 15x7 Magnum's and stock brakes so obviously I could improve in those areas tremendously. The instructors that rode with me and the course workers were amazed that I could keep up with 90% of the cars on the the track. I even passed some slow poke in a newer Porsche and I heard there was a Lambo behind me but I never saw it. Big Grin
