The TransAm Series
We're all guilty of teasing muscle cars from time to time. But if you told Mark Donohuen that muscle cars could do nothing more than go in a straight line, the joke's on you!
Check out how they slide sideways at corner exit!
One of the top comments of the video (28 thumbs-ups, no less) asks, "why dont we have a racing series like this today??? wtf!" Well... we do... and we don't. Thanks to trusty ole' Google, I found that the SCCA TransAm series is still operating. I can't tell you much more than that, though. The romance, the racing stars, the fans, it's all gone. What's left is just too dreadfully dull to hold my attention.
That said, I'd love to be proven wrong. So to any current Trans Am fans out there, feel free to share some of your enthusiasm with us! Especially in the form of awesome race footage!
Hope everyone's having a wonderful weekend!
