Maybe story tellers get better with age. Or, perhaps the stories were that much more interesting back in the day. But is there a single one of us who wouldn't kill siblings for a time machine back to the early 60s just to watch the cars race?

I'm typically not one to look backwards, but certain cars are worth a 402nd look. And no matter how many books I read,

Commenter SRekauqh had only the following to say:
I effing love it.
Both the prosecution and the defense rest your honor.
