What is this - a desert racing late El Camino?
Now, outside of my dune buggy fixation, I have no reason to ever ponder anything like a desert racing rig...
But this thing punches so many buttons in my head.
It's wrong on top of wrong and so right.

I am going to try to make up for doing a Mustang post by tossing out this CB.
I had one of these way back in Seattle...
Somewhat less full tilt as this monster, from Racefit, for sure.
Still it had the period good stuff and my fiddling. Not sure my fiddling did a lot, in retrospect, but make for conversations points with other motorcycle nerds.
Maybe my favorite bike, really.
Dropped a valve on it and sold it to a restorer dude, to thin the herd...

Remember this era?
Eighties IMSA racing was the shit.
I spent a lot of weekends at the track, back then. My mom recognized that I maybe liked that as much as any outdoor activity, so I was watching cars go in circles on the regular...
During this wide, flat fender flare era.
It was awesome.
I don't really have any affinity for Mustangs, except for maybe these things.
They are outrageous, obnoxious and were intoxicating to my still adolescent mind.
I wonder how many of these are lingering under tarps, in the back corners of shops or garages...

Working in the motion pictures will be rewarding and fun, they said...
This movie will look great on your reel, they said...
Filming race cars will be cool and exciting, they said...
Before the invention of GoPro, CGI or even camera boom trucks...
I guess you just tied your camera operator on to whatever dangerous thing you wanted a shot of?
Was a camera mount too expensive?
This picture generates so many questions.
