There's two videos I've been watching over and over...

The first is this nice summary of the 1967 German Grand Prix at Nurburgring

The second is Jacques Laffite at the wheel of a Ferrari F40 LM. I don't know where this is filmed, but the F40's sound is the most beautiful thing ever

Speaking of Nürburgring, here's a onboard video of someone doing a 9 minute lap of Nordschleife in a Z4

My favorite of all the onboard films. Mike Hawthorn doing a lap of Le Mans in a D-Type Jaguar IN 1956!

great thread idea!

porsche 936 @ le mans 1977
mindboggling car control from a young glenn seton @ bathurst 1987 - has been seared into my brain since i first saw it, the full footage with him sideways at 250+ km/h on a STRAIGHT is even better tho

Someone's Avanti drives around the block a bit. It sounds awesome:

"Different by design" Studebaker promo clip, 1964:

Square headlamps spoiled the look of the thing a bit, I think. I'd love an Avanti!

I love these old promo clips, there's loads of them up. Lovely old colours too. Corvair was a stylish machine!

On board a BMW 2002 at the Monte Carlo historic rally race in 2007. Slow going but seriously nuts trying to maintain on the ice.

those big-winged quattro S1s are scary, scary cars. look at these ones on the '85 1000 lakes, compare how much slower the older white quattro is!
