    I have never seen these cars race. My cement truck had dual front wheels like that but I am sure loaded it was quite a bit heavier.:D

    I read the story about the Tyrell and the issues it had with brakes and the 10” tires. It was short lived and eventually F1 said 4 wheels only. Maybe it’s the perspective but he looks big in the car almost like he is in a go kart. Lol

    Racers have never seen an idea they were unwilling to copy.

    I would imagine the double rear wheels have more to do with getting power to the track rather then control as in the Tyrell.

    Never liked the sound of straight 6s. Now V-8s was a whole different story.

    I would have sworn that Escanaba was going to be in California. I had to look it up.

    Escanaba Is a small town of 15,000 people on the Lake Michigan shore line. 40 miles away was another small town named Norway. Both towns had 1/4 mile clay ovals. I lived in between them. I never realized how much our boys were involved with the Milwaukee bunch until we started these countdown threads. My mom and dad were race fans. We went to Escanaba almost every week and sometimes Norway. All in all it was a great place to grow up.
