The Cannonball Run Countach: Supercar Legend | Full Documentary

Recommended Posts

My brother sent me a link to this, and in spite of my usual aversion to spend time watching time-sucking you-tube videos, I did watch this one.  

As a reader of Car and Driver since the very early 1970's, I enjoyed seeing the visuals of Brock Yates' old columns, which at the time strongly resonated with my profound disgust for the then- nationwide 55 mph speed limit.   And hearing Brock's wife comment on his life and their life together was fascinating.  

Yet this really video felt as though it was two separate topics - Brock and his "Cannonball Baker" events - and secondly, the Countach.   Possibly even a third - the related Burt Reynolds/Hal Needham movies.  The attempt to group all these into one single film was to me a bit contrived.  

On the plus side, as several of you above commented, it did make me want to go pull out one of the Fujimi Enthusiast Models and refresh my memory for a potential future build project!

If any of the two...err...three topics listed above interest you, probably worth the time involved to check out the video....TIM
