As Robert Duvall’s character in Days of Thunder said, “He didn’t slam you, he didn’t bump you, he didn’t nudge you… he rubbed you. And rubbin, son, is racin‘.” But to be honest, I don’t think I could ever let my classic JDM – or a classic car of any sort – get so much as a rubbin’, let alone any other form of less-than-loving contact.
Nonetheless, the racing of classic cars continues to be a favourite pastime of enthusiasts around the world, and one hell of a spectacle. So if you’ve got the time and you’re in the area, you need to get yourself down to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to catch The Porsche – Datsun Challenge this coming weekend. Stylistically and mechanically, these cars are so wonderfully matched, and this should be an awesome day!
