These are fine pictures of older race cars. I'm always impressed by how
clean and neat vintage automobiles look in comparison with the aerodynamic
monstrosities of Formula One racing. The absence of fins, foils, and ground
sweeping aprons makes for better looking race cars. Perhaps racing can
return to its golden days by returning to the cars of the Miller era. The
cars may not go as fast but they will certainly look better.
