10 Least Likely and Weird Race Cars of All Time
"Welcome to car stuff. I'm your host Scott Benjamin and join by Kirk Garin producer. Show as well right Kurt. Or that's right. She doing double duty again today. I think we've got a topic that both of us can. We'll probably have a lot to talk about. I think There's there's ten really unusual unlikely weird strange. Whatever you WANNA call them race cars and there's been a list compiled of course lists all over the place. This is one list I should say there's been a list compiled by a A place called driving line dot com and they had an unusual like I different one from others that I've seen which I thought was intriguing so I chose that one to kind of follow along with and then I think we're going to add our own notes because there's not a whole lot of material On each page you know. It's kind of like one of those It's like a slide show almost really when you look at it online you know below. Each photo is just a little bit of information but not a lot of information. So you know when When I when I saw the list thought well I can add something to this and make it really worthwhile for our audience. And you know something that they'd be interested in listening to and and maybe even dig into on their own and learning a little bit more about each one of these cars because they are unique in there are strange and wonderful an unusual and you know all all of the you know always you can describe a race car. That probably shouldn't be out there on the racecourse. Let's maybe the best way to put her. I mean what did you just? Just real quick. And we're not going to really dig into this. Yeah I got a few more things I wanNA talk to you about before we start today's episode. But when you saw this list that I sent over to you this This these ten unusual cars. Did you have any kind of initial Reaction to it? Yeah I mean the look of a lot of the cars is is unique when I looked at it. I went with no preconceived notions though and I tried to take each one in. Look at the era in which it raced. Things began to make a lot more sense. When you look at the cars in the landscape of racing at the time could have been ahead of its time in some ways right in some ways but other cars when you look at your like. I can't imagine at that at that time seeing that car on the race track. It'll be so unusual that it would be the one that would get all the attention You know even if it wasn't the pole sitter even if it wasn't the winner of the race of course or even if nothing really spectacular happened with it just the fact that it's on the track it makes it fascinating and unique in some way so I think it's a good list and and we'll definitely get to that you know. Let's get into some of these These these least likely and weird and unusual race cars as the author of this article says isn't it is Benjamin hunting and he is from. He's a writer from A site called driving line dot com. And that's the list of we're going to follow but I'd say we're going to add a lot to this list. And as Benjamin says racing gets weird sometimes they really does get unusual and strange and We all know this. We all know that you know racers. In a particular series. Whatever series it may be are all about bending the rules and especially? We've seen this especially in NASCAR right. Yeah we've seen it so many times in Nascar is so many different colorful characters and people that Just right in your face about it too. You know like like if it's not specifically immune exactly in the rulebook like that. I'm going to do it. And then you know. The next race has changed. You know. It's yeah the rules in the rule book and now you can't do that so they have to change their tactic and and it's kind of this This cat and mouse back and forth. You know play the game type thing that they do and and as fans we love to watch this we'd love to. We love to see the characters that are that are like a smoke eunuch or you know Carroll Shelby or any of those guys that were really you know just exciting to watch a J foyt. Whoever it happens to be it's just a it creates it creates characters SORTA. I mean a larger than life characters at the racetrack and one of the things that that results from. This is unusual. Car Design or car technology or just Tactics or you know whatever happens to be but these happen to be a the whole the whole like the complete package. These are unusual cars now again. Some of them do have just unusual technology. But along with that you know forum has to follow the function right so right This this makes You know the vehicle. Look Weird in you know. Because they're trying this new technology it makes it look unusual on the track. And that's what makes it stand out and sometimes as we said you know. These are the cars to get all the attention whether or not there on the on the pole position or win the race or don't even place at all if they make one lap. Everybody's kind of doing eye in over that one car or you know laughing at. Maybe they're laughing at it. This is on the list but a modern example of some of these types of cars will be the Delta Wing. Oh yeah that was an a sports car. Race car yeah. They're racing it anymore very unusual car. So that kind of gives you an idea if you're familiar with the Delta Wing. What we're about the dive into. Yeah if you're not take a look online I mean just do a quick Google search and you you'll be able to find the Delta wing but that is a really strange design especially I mean. Look at it next to any other car on the course at the time completely unusual. They're really strange. But that's exactly what we're talking about. And as the you know the cars as Benjamin says here you know the defy convention and a lot of cases the boundaries of good taste. And I I agree. Sometimes that's the case but you know they all have Something likeable about them as well. You know there's something about rooting for the underdog or something. You know cheering for you. Know the guy that is trying something new. Hey why not There've been again a lot of people that A lot of people that enjoy doing that. And they do so behind the The wheel of misfits like number one on our list here which is the Cadillac. Lamont Stra and I hope I'm pronouncing that right but it's a French racecar and it's a nineteen forty nine car actually Which is competing in one thousand nine hundred fifty and I'll I'll describe what's going on here but you really need to take a look at this car online you need to. You need to have an image of what we're talking about here because there is some unusual bodywork going on right definitely wind tunnel tested if for the time. That's that's pretty a pretty unique. I would imagine for road race car anyway. For any car. I think at that time. I don't think I don't think they're doing a lot of Of Wind Tunnel testing back. In that time I mean I know that you know. Of course the Wright brothers had built their you know their little wind tunnel and there were there. Were you know to test? Their designs like the tabletop version. And then later a bigger version but then and I think that you know of course there were. There were some wind tunnels around there. Were and I know that manufacturers did use them and you know there's the later I think I don't know about catch here remember when the Chrysler Airflow was bill but of course manufacturers use wind tunnel testing and they do now a lot and so two race teams. Of course I think when you see car looks like this from this era. The wind tunnel is almost always to blame to blame. They've they're designing the car based on that data that they get from the test. How does it sides? Yeah Yeah. It's a very unusual looking car to me. You know what it looks like to me and I. I'm not a huge star wars fan. Believe it or not I mean and I kind of grew up in that era and I think it was the first movie I ever saw out. You know with my parents like at a theatre back in the late seventies to me the Cadillac series. Sixty one that. This is built from based on the nineteen forty nine. Not The not the streetcar. But this car this This Monster Stra looks an awful lot like the land speeder from From Star Wars. Yeah it really does. I mean it's not the same color is not that copper color anything but it does have a lot of similarity to the land speeder. Yeah and it looks like it's almost hovering above the ground. You can't really see the wheels underneath it. It's such an unusual designed very very strange. Very cool now But imagine seeing this in nineteen fifty on the racetrack in LME. Because that's where raced Briggs Cunningham was the one who took this car and again underneath? It's nineteen forty nine Cadillac series. Sixty one is a couple of cars that he actually brought. He brought a factory. Spec manual equipped series sixty one coupe and the other one was the one that they had designed in the wind tunnel. And this is the the Lamont Stra Which means of course the monster and for good reason I mean when you see I guess But the the French. I think dubbed it but this car had a Three hundred thirty one cubic inch V eight that had five carburetors. And it says it ran an eventful race burying itself in the Sand Bank at one point in requiring Cunningham to leave the driver's seat and dig it out and then despite all that he finished eleventh in the race. Now isn't that unusual? I mean now think about getting out of the car having to dig out of a Sandbank. Get it back on. The course came back in racing again for the remainder of the twenty four hours whatever wherever it is and still finishing eleven in eleventh place. That's impressive it is impressive. It's impressive car survived that kind of a lick. The I think it's a decent finish. I GUESS FOR V. You know did something like that. Usually you know we've heard of these unusual cases where a driver will be in a race in the you know they. They Call Spin and so they've had a spin out. They didn't hit a wall or anything like that and yet they win the race somehow

"Out of the market and when you're talking about just things like mustangs and Camaros and and things like that. So Oh you make your money off parts. I have a lady named Tracy Smith who is just wonderful running the licensing licensing company. But it's absolute amazing. How many different things come in every week that they want to put your name on that you end up making living living if you make a living out of this rack? There's no get rich quick thing. Well whether or not those classic years of the sixties when you were building cars and racing was profitable title winner. Prize is probably something that will remain your business but for the rest of the world it was certainly the most exciting of times it was. Yeah I mean the so-called Shelby years were nineteen sixty two to nineteen sixty nine. That's when you and your team were able to develop cars and win races. The the biggest companies couldn't develop the cars ars and couldn't win. Well what are little company can do is take a concept and be producing it in three or four months where it takes the company's companies a couple of years to put something together by the time that they have so much money in it that it has to be a success which creates a situation situation where they get scared to do anything that's a little radical you know we can be in and out of it even if it doesn't work in six months so that's the advantage of our little deal in being in partnership with forward when the Mustang came out in nineteen sixty four and you. You had a look at it. I remember you calling it a secretary's car. Essentially you transformed what was face lifted Falcon with hardly anytime and hardly any money into an SEC. A champion and a period of months. Did you ever think that that car would turn out to be. Probably the most iconic and collectable American sports car from the sixties. I never dreamed aimed would be and I never realized that it not only would be that but the nine thousand nine hundred sixty five model you know you needed to keep reparation agent the right seat because that turns out to be the most valuable one the ones that bring the most money. Today are those that I thought. Well we gotta develop this car so it rides a little better this and that and yet they all rough ride and sixty five bring more money than the smooth ride. Sixty six so cost move. Habit is no call. Yeah so called smooth but it's not done right very smooth either but the way that thing came about was a bust of the guys at Ford in the Racing Department then in what I call. The golden years of performance was a sixties as far ars. I'm concerned they went back to John Bishop. SEC A and says there's a goofy word call homologation which makes it you know regulated or makes it a production car and I of the Federation if I am the governing body is we wanNA. They couldn't pronounce some allegation but they wanted him to approve what they wanted to do. And he says now and they went back into our coca and says No. They won't do anything that's when he called me and I'd known John For years and what I did is I just picked up the phone. I said John On. They want me to make a sport car out of this now. God Damn it. I can't take any crap out of you. Understand that you turn those guys down and I don't I know why but tell me what I gotta do to do it. I just have to do it. He's all that's simple says. We'll just take the backseat out. And says you gotta get get that in up to three hundred horsepower. Says that wouldn't be any trouble improve the brakes and improve the suspension and take the rear seat out and so we did those things. Chuck can't well did and I don't know if you were out there. Jump today truck driving a three fifty artists that was a he drove. No deal and He's a nice quiet this guy. He's he's a really good engineer are would. He's the kind of guy that just does things and nothing flamboyant about him he just such a wonderful guy and I'm so glad. Ah made sure that this thing that they're doing up here today. That Get the headlines. And they're the people that did it and that's what makes me you when something like this happens I try to take the time to let the world know that nobody does is anything. It's team that gets things done and all I tried to do was pick the people that know how to do it. 'cause I can't build a car that if I put an engine that wouldn't run. Well I don't care if the world knows that I won't find messed engine builder if I need engines built if I want to take a Mustang and turn it into What we call a shelby? I WanNa find the people that can do it. That's the reason I moved to California in nineteen sixty because I wanted to build my own car and the only people in America. That could do it at the time. Where the hot-rodders waters started back in the thirties late twenties and thirties and it started here in California and there was a law guys with twenty and thirty years experience and out of that came the best guy that ever ran into feel remington? You know and there were a lot of field REMINGTON. I don't think there was anybody that could do what feel could do. That's the reason I came out here and built three or four chances and never could quite put the thing together. I want to head cold. Says you know the corvettes corvettes kind of a legislative here. I think I could do some things with it. That would improve. Would you mind me try. He Says No. No no well what do you need need. I say this need three core vits not mound putting a box so I build some other parts build another the body. I said by heavy fiber glass so I took him and took him to Italy. Who who's the beautiful skelly Eddie? Scalia Yeah Yeah Utah. Took them scale yet. He says Hell your body builder. I don't know what the says. What do you think they ought to look like? I got got a call from him. About what when they were just beginning to get to work on them and says she'll be you know those three core vits that I got for you. He said it never happened. Forget it he says Zora and Mackenzie have gotten to the chairman and my ass is in trouble brother so I had to finish him and Gary Laughlin bought one and GM ho about another doctrine. Houston Baden I sold them. Because I didn't have the money to even finish and of course that's a million dollar. Today is a million dollar car today. People people ask me and those Daytona Coupe sale for fifteen million dollars today says why did you sell them. I say 'cause I needed needed four thousand dollars back then and I said besides that when we built the Daytona coupes and went out and won the world championship with them used race cars in obsolete. Not Worth anything. There's of Ferrari that I drove four. Nine Ferrari a friend friend of mine has in Denver. Probably Worth fifteen million dollars now. Yeah I turned down buying for thirty five hundred after after I dreamed it in nineteen team. Sixty six sixty seven and I said I never thank of what something that I had was or is worth because house. I'm always thinking about what I WANNA do next. Well that's what I want to build next rather than improve what we did on the last whatever it was rather than thank how missed the boat on selling stuff. They're keeping something that did I shoot a gift from a financial standpoint but as I said money is never. It's always been one of my problems making a lot of money. I know a lot OUGHTA be in areas that have I got guys that. Have one hundred of my cars to me money grubbers or not very happy people to have people in this world or the guys that go do what they wanna do and make that their lives someway. They've figured out how to make a live how to make a living out of it and that to me is kind of the way I've always been I've made enough money to survive on. There will be a wealthy man. I don't care whether I'm a wealthy man or not. It doesn't and making a difference to me if I then I just go out and buy a bunch shit..

"Got making this thing a sport car. I've been told to tell me what I gotta do. He says what. I'm glad you approach me like that. Instead of just telling me that you were going to make it a sport car since taking the rear seat out put some larger brakes on the front put three three hundred or more horsepower in it good close ratio transmission improve the brakes improve the stiffen the suspension and make it a sport car. Well sure enough. It took us about sixty days to do that. And we wound up with a car that won the national championship in its production class for six or you're seven years. The first year we built five hundred I think the next year seventeen hundred then the next year five thousand. So that's the way it began and then the Mustang got too heavy and too big so went away you work primarily with Ford's parts for the car initially offered while we did was we've worked with the assembly plant at Milpitas in California and they deleted the hood the Deck Lid the trunk all the parts we wanted to lead. They took off the assembly plant. Then we built pieces out of fiberglass and fabricated different parts for the engine to hoppy engine up Ford lowness a couple of real. Oh young designers who worked fulltime at our place in California and we would change the shape of this the shape of that so it had a distinct look. Actually I really got into it and had a lot of fun doing it. It was something that I didn't know anything about doing because I was sport car car guy and I wanted to build my own sport car to beat the Corvette and then we adjust gone into trying to take on Ferrari at the time. So I tell people are trying to make a Mule Outrun Racehorse essentially afford fairly. And I guess that and it was a Falcon can Ford Falcon which the fairlane call all came off of it. The Mustang came off of it Don Frye. As far as I'm concerned was genius at what he was doing there at Ford. I guess the first Shelby's were essentially competition models models and then of course they were more. Yes you're absolutely right. The first ones were street legal racers. And that's what we thought that it would take to establish the reputation of the car. We stripped everything off of it. Air Conditioning radios and all of that stuff and and built the first ones as race cars and went out and beat the corvettes on the race. Track and then we gradually started adding things to them by nineteen seventy. The car had power windows air conditioning. It weighed about a thousand pounds more than the original. So now is this afford idea was this a carroll shelby idea actually actually I quit building the myself shelby. American did in sixty eight because I saw the emissions safety coming along and for a little company to try to do all that and still bill performance cars as you know. Performance went away in American Seventies Seventies. BMW was brilliant about it. They took a little four cylinder two. Oh two claimed it was a sports sedan and they took the performance business business away from America which with a car that didn't perform any better than some of the things we had but they really were brilliant in their merchandising. I think that's is probably what got me. BMW off the ground in this country because they took advantage of this instead of just building anything performance wise as we did in the seventy two thousand two who was the one of the most pivotal European cars of the period. I think so because they took a little four cylinder sedan and turned it in to the first pocket rocket. They made it the sport car. And we forgot about this and we gave them that toehold and they've been brilliant ever since. I'm sure everybody asks you this Mr Shelby but do you have a favorite shelby. Mustang was her favourite model. Is there a favorite favorite one of the you know I hated this sixty eight when we did it but you know. I love the sixty eight convertible now the sixty five. I guess I've gotten older rides to rough. The Sixty six fix is fun to drive down the street but some way you let top down on that sixty eight convertible I enjoy driving it around. I don't get on a racetrack anymore. I'd probably say sixty five is my favorite but sixty eight. I guess I would say that's the one I enjoy driving around the most. Now who pick the colors for all those those at a part of your deal with the you know I never get into what something should look like except on the four twenty seven Cobra Daytona Coupe. I had something to do with that Pete. Iraq did the first drawings on on the Daytona Coupe. And I would go and look at the things that we were doing. We had these designers that Ford assigned to us and then we had the kids from the Arts Center. That helped a lot. But I don't get into designs on on everything that I bill because I saw the people that run these. He's big motor companies. I've worked with all three And I see the chairman and the president go down the design studio and try to tell person that's trained in that particular her business take this off and they had that and they don't know shit about it really and it's all a matter of opinion so I kind of let these guys do it. That they're trained rein to do it. They know what flows and what doesn't like working for. You would be a real dream every designer's dream then. Well that's what Bob Lutz is. Trying to bring out a General Motors. I think Bob always admired what the guys at Tom Gay. Oh put together at Chrysler I've admired. What Don de la Rosa did at forward and then later at Chrysler? I thought they were kind of atrocious. But I've grown to love what Harley Earl let these guys do at General Motors with those fans. Obviously you've had a stint with all all the big three Chrysler deal door within the work with all of them and they're a pain in the ass in La ways which you can't build a car especially today without working with them. It's the politics that get in the way of what you're trying to accomplish because naturally those people in and outside or like me goes in to try to get something done or they get jealous because this is their livelihood and they don't want to see an outsider cider. Come in there and tell them what to do so always tried to politically kind of keep an even balance. Stay out of the politics as much as I can. You really can't. It's a double edged sword. You GotTa have them a lot of times. They get in your way so bad that like they say the Campbell aw was a beautiful Arabian horse designed by committee. That's works around those things a lot of the time. There's I've run into a few you people at those places though that are real entrepreneurs and real renegades and I admire them greatly for going against the tide certainly historically Guiseley delorean even trying to sell his car which was kind of like trying to push it up. He'll we talk about politics. We can talk about your latest venture automotive which is a series one was the old Aurora engine. A political decision or that a motor that way that thing started was John Rock quiz friend of Mine and John Rock was in charge of the oldsmobile. Division I went to John and we sat down for a year to and I said John. I'm seventy years old over seventy but I think there's a niche out here. That's not being handled. I said that North Star engine is hell of an engine engine built in America Day. I think we might build a sport car and he and I sat down and put a deal together to get it going and I put up some of my my money. And he arranged for those mobile dealers to become involved and it was coming along just fine and then this guy's a relic comes on board. He didn't appreciate a cowboy like John. Rock who knew how to motivate people knew what he wanted to get done told them where he warned him go and he got out of the way and let them do it well. This guy came in with his brand management thing and the first thing you know I had people in the thing that didn't know one one end of a car from the other two or three were fairly decent people but it became a nightmare and five years. Now I've finally gotten the car Dr that I can say I'm really proud of it. It's not the most the nest car in the world but now those mobile engine with the Super Charger. There's nothing an old man like me. went out and did a three point seven and a quarter of how did one hundred twenty eight and a quarter. There's nothing touches that not the latest Ferrari and they bill some damn good cars by the way there's a lot of good sport cars out there but the series one. I'm happy with it now. But it's taken five years and we had to do it ourselves. We didn't really get any help from those mobiles Speeco after John Rock Left. I've always been very disappointed in that but do you feel you finally achieved a car that That you're saying five years though And we've had to go out and do it ourselves. And I had to sail seventy five percent of the company and bring a partner in venture industries to get it done because it just wasn't getting done the other way so it wasn't like working with Ford Ward back in the sixties the company's Change. Do you think working with the big. Three's changed over that not ruin. You always run the problem when you work with those people. You have always always have a working relationship with somebody in the company that you are in tune with and they wanna get the same thing done that you do and they run interference for you and take care of your like coca did with me at Ford then bulky. Knutson comes in and hatch. He hated me because I built a Cobra's is not teased him all the time about the fact that General Motors had had so much to do with chaparrals. I says why don't you all admit that you're building a mon- helping him. How the exam well when he came over to Ford? They're came to ball sues their key. The all the stuff to try.
How a 1988 Dodge Challenger Reunited These High School Sweethearts
"This next story from Jan Wilkerson. Hello Chris I thought I would share my story so when I was a young kid probably about ten or eleven. My Dad had a nineteen seventy eight dodge Aspen four-door four-door it had a three sixty police. Engine I thought for some reason it was the coolest thing in the world. I think that is what started me on the car thing I was more in obeys as Balden cars at the time and I played many years and my life at that time looked like baseball was my future not anything to do with cars but that car did something a and cars were almost as important to me as baseball almost will anyway. This is about cars not baseball then. My Dad decided to sell that car. In by a Chrysler Laser. My heart was crushed that card in last long any traded it in on a bright red nineteen eighty eight dodge shadow. Es Turbo both five speed. That car was super cool. Well that same year is when I bought my car. I was currently driving somewhat a Mo- par but not really. It was in nineteen. Eighty the two Plymouth Champ on okay first car but the car bug was about to bite and fight hard. I was at work at our local Ford dealer. Bob Chapman Ford and and a Guy Dave lamb in the body shop drove in the car. That changed my life. I was a junior in high school and saw this awesome. Nineteen seventy-one Dodge Dodge Challenger. I instantly fell in love with the car. The funny thing is the thing that made me really think the car was awesome was the consul. Yeah the council. I know how crazy but I just had to have this car so I sold my champ two days later in convinced my dad that this car was better for me than the Plymouth. He hesitated take in hesitated but I think he thought the car was super cool too but would never admit that was September of nineteen eighty eight. When I bought my first muscle car the the first thing I did to the car was I added the side stripes and restored all the interior still has the same interior to this day except the carpet? So this was the start of an obsession and bathing this car for the next thirty years. There's been so many stories involving the Challenger cruising around with the love of my life. Jenny Gasson even though she never knew that at the time her and I were great friends and I had such a crush and she had no idea life. Got In the way and we didn't see each other again. Another story is. The car was in building that caught fire about seven or so years later. All the cars in the building including the building were completely destroyed. But somehow some way the challenger didn't even get a scratch on it during the fire. The firefighters saw the car while the place was on fire. They pushed the car car out. There was another crazy thing that happened. I found a nineteen sixty seven Mustang that I thought was super cool and the guy that owned it loved my challenger so we decided added to do a trade. I know why right so the deal was done. I was to meet him the next day so I had everything ready and was about to leave. I called him His son answered and said he had bad news. His father had passed away that morning. I was shocked so like I said so. Many crazy stories another time. How am I lost control in the car and went off? The road came within two inches from hitting a poll. Once again not a single scratch. I did have so many fun times in this car. Also also there are so many more stories that will make your head spin but probably the story that touches me. The most is that after twenty five years of not seeing or even talking to Jenny any the love of my life. She messaged me on facebook because she saw a picture of the Challenger and ask. Is that the car we cruised around when we were kids. I was shocked that she not only contact me but remembered the car. That was why I can say the car brought me to the love of my life again. We are currently engaged gauge and have been together for the past five years. So if you want to hear more I've owned this car almost thirty two years and I have several other MO- parts including shelby dodge. CSX CSX prototype owned by Carroll Shelby himself so please contact me. Thank you Jan Wilkerson. PS sorry it was so long may run on on but thought you may like some of my stories January absolutely right. I love your stories. I think they're awesome It's good to see that not only. Do you have some muscle muscle car in there. But you also have some of the Turbo Mo par stuff that I really enjoy as well I'm a really big fan of Turbo Mo- pars and hand any of the eighties. Mo- pars I think are pretty cool. And they deserve respect in their own right Alongside the muscle cars. So I aw said it before. I don't discriminate when it comes to Mow Pars I love them all so your story was really awesome Jan.. I really enjoyed reading it. It is amazing that you know some people they have the cars that get away and they end up. Reuniting with those cars several years later in your case you had a human that you you know lost contact with and ended up. Reuniting with several years down the road you know twenty five years is a long time you know after twenty five years of not seeing each other. The car brought you back together. That is a great story. I love hearing stories like that. How Fun
Ford v Ferrari Demands a Drive to the Theater
"You say you saw that Ford versus Ferrari the other night at the show. I'M GONNA put my movie reputation on the line and saying that if if you don't don't love this movie if you don't think this is a great flick you can go take a hike or yeahs Eddie Shack say you can put an egg on your shoe and beat it. Is that what. He's some some line like that. That made me laugh. Great Flick all my God. And here's the thing made me laugh. Made me cry at had at all. It was an awesome movie long to two hours. Forty minutes right around there But I I will say for people who are into car racing NASCAR f-foreign kind of has a little bit of everything in there. I knew nothing going in like so the ending running is a is a little different to me having known nothing. I think if you don't know anything don't even glading. Just go in.
