Not exactly...

Here's what today's cars look like leaning through the corners at some tracks.  I mentioned that you can read the driver's name on the left side of their roof (if you can read upside down) from the spectator stands even when they are in the middle of the frontstretch.  Looks like they stay hiked over on the right side all the way around pretty much, except for when they lift.  Maybe the lettering folks will have to flip the lettering on the leftside roof line so it doesn't appear upside down.Laughing

Us old timers keep thinking something's broke, but at some tracks, this has become the fast way around.

The 10 may have been the first Pinto dirt car, or if not, one of the first.

I can't remember any at Flemington prior to '73. Ed Holland had one at Reading around this time too. Brightbill and Chamberlain started '73 with the coach/coupe, and ended it with Pintos.
