Just when does a racecar become vintage anyway?

The question has come up asking when is a racecar considered vintage anyway? I am looking for what other folks think in this regard. A friend from the San Antonio area said it becomes vintage when it stops being competitive in whatever venue it races. That is a very interesting view. It has a lot of merit. I bet there are a lot of dust covered cars parked in storage of one sort or another that are very close to being scrapped. A car like that might get to the point of not having a good supply… Continue

La Carrera 2009 -- Postscrip

The '09 La Carrera Panamericana was sell out for the second year in a row with 107 entries. Given the world's economy, that was something of a surprise.



The race was a little more newsworthy because the brother of the president of Mexico participated in a vintage Alfa, and the owners of the big Mexican TV company, Televisa, were also competitors. Another entry of note was the "Leningrad Cowboys," a rock band from Finland, that was apparently retracing the steps of Pink Floyd, who… Continue

The Historic Stock Car Racing Series - Moving Ahead by Going Back in time in 2010

The Historic Stock Car Racing Series, www.hscrs.com, announces that it will continue to be the go-to organization where owners of authentic 1995 and older NASCAR and Winston Cup stock cars raced 'back in the day" can register and authenticate their 'rolling pieces of American racing history. Our members can then, if they choose to, compete in a respectful manner alongside similarly minded gentlemen and lady drivers.



HSCRS is dedicated to the… Continue

How to crash a vintage car and make people not notice

Have you even heard of the blame rule that says" no one is looking at you as long as you are pointing at someone else." ? Sometimes when a driver, and I use that term loosely, runs out of talent, he or she will not want to admit that lack of talent was involved. Lot's of things tend to pop up in the blame department. " I had the sun in my eyes, I have new tires, I have old tires, The mechanic reset the shocks, It was the other guy who did something, cut me off," etc. etc. feel in the blank. I… Continue

a new club for vintage racing with a twist

Funny how when I wrote the last series of blogs I heard from a number of racers that were in fact looking for a place to race their pre 1990 cars. As a result they are talking about getting together and taking a serious look at insurance, and cost of doing a racing club that falls somewhere between strict vintage and an SCCA type deal. The discussion has moved to a what if and where stage. I am just listening to what is happening. I was not aware that there were this many guys are out there in… Continue

how to kill a vintage racing club

I belong to a pretty successful vintage organization in Texas. I have done so since around 1995 give or take a year. For many of the early years it was a "run what ya brung group" it was lots of fun. In the past few years there has been a push to remove the "non vintage" cars like, reproduction Lotus 7's, 11's and other car of that nature. This is all good if the intent is to have really vintage club. The problem here is that the rules that are supposed to be followed are not.

The club… Continue

board member election for CVAR

It might be a good time for those in CVAR who may or may not be happy with how things are in the club, to elect someone for whatever position you are unhappy about. I am sure some new blood or old blood is due for some positions. Heck I might even run for a position on the board. Don't just rubber stamp the members. That would be kinda like voting the same old boys into the Kremlin. Just make sure of two things, first make sure the person you want will do it, second make sure that they can get… Continue
