That was a great time for GM. The whole time I watched the test video I was thinking of my Grandmother O'Brien coming up from behind and blasting by with her '54, back seat pulled out and three milk cans across the back.

 

They said they took it to Daytona to avoid conflict with other divisions. I think that meant they were getting away from this trouble maker:

 

I heard Duntov had his test track license revoked for buzzing some of the routine tests. Listen to those biased tires at 2:40 seconds on the Vette vid. I have this on a cassette and in the pre-CD days I played it cranked up in the garage a lot.

It's even more fun in the winter (actually, I've gotten older and I'm more aware of the risks of cross-country travel in the winter through the Rockies).  This is outside Kearney Nebraska on the way to skiing in Utah and hiking in Big Bend.  Keep tools handy...

Ah - if only those trips rose to such noble intentions.  More like "Fools rush in…" .
