    I enjoyed watching that, I have always admired Smokey Yunick for his ability to create race cars and race engines that were ahead of the times. It's now a forgotten profession and racing has lost that element for ever.

        Attended a few of his seminars years ago. That video only just begins to show how much of a character he really was. The racing and life stories in his book are well worth the read. A true legend, thanks for sharing.
