The only thing close to as cool as the Can-Am series in US motorsport in the late '60s-early '70s was drag racing. Except for one niggling little thing. There was a ponycar war afoot, and the soldiers on the ground consisted of factory-supported racers in long-hood, short-deck coupes cranking big power out of V8s of relatively small displacement. And they just happened to be some of the most quadruple-rad racing cars of all time, driven by men whose testosterone quotient required no enhancement. Yes kids, let us once again travel back to the glory days of the Trans-Am series, because it makes much of today's road racing look tame by comparison and casts NASCAR in the doofiest light imaginable. We're gonna go make out with our hand now.
