Carol’s Corner: Road Atlanta: 40 Years and Counting!
And Yes, my friends, my first brand new car was a 1972 Ford Pinto hatchback. It was red with a black textured roof. I was only 18, so I thought I was really cool!
I don’t, however, remember wearing these long dresses … although I did own a few pajamas that looked like that. Was that a southern lady dress style?
That brings me to another subject … what changes in technology have you seen in the racing industry? What is most memorable?
Here is an Electronic Heuer Centigraph used for timing by officials and crews. I’m sure that brings back some memories. And my weapon of choice in 1971 … the IBM electric typewriter!
For all of you seasoned veterans (drivers, team owners, pit crew, mechanics & fans), what do you miss about the old days? What can’t you live without now? What do you want to see in the future?
We would love to hear your stories!
