Those were the days ........ that much power in a fast deep V but with an old style steering system and it was just disaster waiting to happen.

That was pushing the envelope..... and we all have much safer steering today because of stuff like this happening.

Down to the last 6 hours before the bidding ends. Someone is going to have some nice rare Cigarette history.
