Ford GT 40The original GT 40 was one of the most revolutionary race cars in history. One of the first mid engine race cars, it's design set the trend for future mid engine cars. It used a monocoque design and a new system of construction where molding and bonding were used as in the aircraft industy. It exceeded 200 mph down the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans and versions of it won there four times. The one pictured above is the late model recreation.
Dodge DaytonaThe Dodge Daytona was one of the most potent and aerodynamic cars in the stock car circuit during its day. The history of stock car and NASCAR goes back to the late forties and fifties when moonshine runners hopped up their cars to outrace the law. It took many decades of rule changes to get to the cars we see today. Stock meant that it was a car from the factory and not a racecar in the traditional sense built from the ground up. Small modifications were made but basically it was a car that most anybody could own.
