For old boys Can-Am 01

 

 

I was always interested in cars, but seeing race cars really excited me and influenced my career.

 

I was lucky to live here and attend the local 1966 - 1973 Can Am Challenge races.

 I have attached some photos of cars were very interesting to me.

 

Engineers were learning about aerodynamics and suspension and every car was different. Very exciting to me.
