Chaparral, race car I long for and want to see.|
That chaparral is going to be hot shot for Monterey Historical Raceand I cannot be not attempted to go. It is the 32nd year for this race and every year historical valuable race cars are picked up and finally it was Chaparral for this year.
Back in 25 years ago, Shelby was picked and since I was in California, It was the same race I went driving through night to see Shelby Mustang and Cobra. Its still fresh in my memory about seeing Cobra and 1965 Shelby GT350 for first time and how I had goose bump from that appearance. I was amazed by scene of those historic valued race cars race seriously on track, May be that why USA is so great.
That race held in Laguna Seca in California is the Monterey Historic Automobile Race. Every year different race car is chosen to be picked up and always I was curious to see but I have never been able to attend from Japan and end up seeing it on magazine. I tried to see it again as my friend in California told me that Chaparral is picked up this year but again I ended up asking my friend to take picture for me.
Ford GT40 MKII and Chaparral were so cool to us in the Junior School time, We were flattered by their cool appearance. During time while slot cars were hot, Chaparral was released from COX but it was too expensive to buy for a kid at time and always was featured in car magazine and playboys which my older brother used to buy. It was the chance to see that Chaparral.
But my friend sent me a memorial T shirt for me knowing I would love to go.Thank you.
Back than Toyota and Nissan was approaching to race in CanAm race Cars and fashion are still as it was in good old days.
By the way Dean MOON was here in Japan as member of USAC when they raced in Fuji speed way going other way round.
