So let's say McAllister pops out a 68 Barracuda tomorrow.

What would he say... "No, I'm sorry, it's not on the Historic VTA webpage. Never mind the fact that it actually ran in Trans Am in the correct class in the correct time period."

so somebody needs to pop the dart and the amx. the front page also shows the other classes that ran vintage trans am. the u2 class. alfa's bmw datsun etc. its more than just the big bore cars. trans am was alot of different car classes. i guess we are only running the "big bore" cars. sure would be nice to see a dodge dart body.

What is really funny is that I was explaining what the vintage racing that is coming to IMS this weekend was to my father-in-law. He said "they don't really race do they?"

I googled this very picture last night at dinner and showed it to him.

At some Historic races, they will put multiple classes together, depending on the turn out. If you look really close, there are 3 Vettes in that pile up.
