I loved that part where Ken Miles let's all the cars go by while in the pits, then comes out to pass them all and claim second. I remember a story in one of the old SAAC magazines I will try to retell from memory. During time trials at a road race, they take a Cobra out and put down some impressive times. Then a crew member sneaks a specially marked fuel can said to contain an experimental outlaw blend of rocket fuel. He proceeds to fill the Cobra's tank while being observed by the competition. The Cobra is taken back out for another lap session. This time it is screaming around the track, hanging out in the corners, barely under control, and posting phenominal lap times. When the car pits, the competitors raise a stink to the officials that the car was running unapproved fuel. The officials check and find standard race gas the same that is used by eveyone else. Needless to say, the competition left feeling none too confident. Charlie

People are still racing these cars for real even now. I regularly race against a 289 Cobra and have seen others (incl 427) being raced. Oh, and I have got my '69 Mustang going faster than the 289 Cobra now!

They used to put up a tombstone in the infield. Said something like "Here Lies the Corvettes"
Years ago, we were house sitting for a friend and 'Vette owner. For lack of anything better to read, I picked up one of his Vette history book. Got a real laugh out of the references in 1963 thru 1970 as the "Dark Ages" for the Vettes. They said it was unfair that the vettes had to compete with a car that was 800 to 1000 lbs lighter.
...Boo...Hoo.... ;>)
