Trans-Am racing.

Can-Am and Trans-Am racing were easily THE glory days of american road racing.  Will american road racing ever get something as cool as this ever again? doubtful.  Look at the style of the public at those races, and look at the lively attendance.  As I type this, I am watching the Continental Sports Car Challenge on SpeedTV and thinking it may be the only descendent left of the original Trans-Am series; however there is hardly a crowd there, barely any enthusiasm, and lacking great drivers like the Trans-Am series had.  What a shame.
