video of the day. can am 1967 (repost)

i will contend that the greatest sounding cars in the history of motor racing were can am cars.  if you would like to debate me about this, then you have never witnessed them in person!

I had posted these videos about a year and half ago—but just saw them again today and had to repost them.

BMW 3.0 CSL “art car”

This was commissioned by BMW, and the artist’s name is Frank Stella; a minimalist painter/artist from the USA.  The other “art car” designs i’ve seen BMW commission have really been quite disgusting and disgraceful to the faithful classics….this one, however, looks fantastic in IEDEI opinions!

2008 Coronado Festival of Speed

Several weeks ago, I found myself in San Diego for a conference.  That saturday, I, by chance, found out about a ‘festival of speed’ going on at a military base in Coronado.  So i took a cab over there, got lost on the naval base, however proceeded to end up at an AMAZING day of Can-Am, Trans-Am, and vintage race cars and street cars going at it on a runway.  It was a superb day, with some of the greatest cars in history going at it!

Here are a couple videos i’ve found on YouTube documenting that fly day.
