The only other time you would have seen anything like this would have been in black and white.
Even in the world of vintage car racing, this is a hell of thing. What you are looking at is the Vintage Sports Car Club, an organization in the UK which arranges events for prewar sports cars on period-correct “roads.” Parts of it seems a bit extreme even when compared to some modern rallies, and it’s a safe bet that none of these cars have AWD. Our favorite part is the passengers bobbing up and down for extra traction.
Some people might be mad about how these cars are being used, some might find it awesome. We mostly just find it bizarre and more than a little mesmerizing to watch. Also, fairly humorous.
