This ain't asphalt, son. This is dirt. You don't have three-wheel brakes, so you got to pitch it hard, break it loose and then just drive it with the throttle. Give it too much, you'll be outta the dirt and into the tulips. I'll put it simple. If you're goin' hard enough left, you'll find yourself turnin' right.

I'm guessing it's a 1950 Ford, but not with a flathead V8.

Why is it the same footage of the same corners over and over and over again? BORING.

Well, this is basically how stock car racing began. Only things missing are the trunk full of shine and a revenuer chasing him.

What do they think they rallied with back in the 50s? Cars from the future?

You could run that course in a Honda, but you will never be that cool.

More likely to be seen "fully lit", if you know what I mean...

Cool concept, cool car. Also, done in one. I have to admit, though, that I was a *little* disappointed when I saw the video, because when I think "hot rod", this is what comes to mind:

and I'd love to see that on a rally course.

I think those are referred to as 'rat' rods.
