Bobby Unser's 1972 Torino

It was great seeing all the vintage race cars at Laguna Seca a couple weekends back, but what struck us about most of them was how small they really are in person. Then we saw this monster: it's the NASCAR '72 Torino driven by Bobby Unser to a fourth-place finish at Riverside in 1973, and it made the Lotus 11s parked nearby look like mechanic's creepers. Dig that 625-horsepower Boss 429! Now we can see why all 70s Torino owners need to go out this very minute and chop about 5" off their cars' ride height. We were very, very disappointed that this car wasn't let out onto the track with a bunch of high-strung Italian race cars. 3800 pounds of Detroit iron coming through!
