Nostalgia

Last night I posted on the Spring Classic Showcasing Nitro Revival at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. This morning, after a good night's sleep, I'm feeling reflective. That's what "historic" race cars do for me. I haven't been to hundreds of races but probably more than some so seeing race cars that I saw 20-50 years ago brings back those times for me. I hope those cars give the younger folks an idea of what it was like "back in the day."

The Can-Am cars were running when I arrived at the track. Boy did that take me back. I only saw one Can-Am race in person - St. Jovite, Quebec in 1970. The track is Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant. It was a beautiful setting in the Laurentian Mountains, kind of in a bowl. When I arrived the cars practicing and sound of those big V8s echoing was awesome. Seeing and hearing the cars again brought back memories of a skinny kid in his beat-up VW Beetle looking in awe at his heroes. It was the last trip that old VW ever made
