1968-1972 marked some of the coolest years for auto racing in the United States. You see that was when Trans Am racing was in full swing with pony cars from every American manufacturer battling it out on raceways throughout the country. Names like Donohue, Penske, Elford, and Jones were in the spotlight with Camaros, Mustangs, Cudas and Javelins running fender to fender. Back then race teams would open up wheel housings and flare fenders so as to fit some big rubber to their cars for better performance. The cars looked great, had a nice squat stance and in the end, turned out to be icons of American racing. Nowadays pro-touring hobbyists are harnessing the spirit of Trans Am racing by modifying classic and modern cars alike with some cool wide body stances from the racers of yesteryear. They look great, perform even better and at the end of the day, remind us of one of the greatest times in American road racing history.
