The SCCA Tire Rack Solo Nationals remains one of the most stressful events in motorsports thanks to the format of the event combined with the immense scope. Ultimately, it’s just another autocross: Three runs on each of two courses decide the winners.

Well done and congrats; normally we'd have you flogged with a rusty timing chain for showing up on tires that old but you sprung into action and salvaged your event...............nicely done.

Sam Strano has been super helpful with my Camaro too.  It'll be ready for some CAM fun soon.

And I'm guessing back then it would have been in F Stock, right? 

Also, peep the Civic Si next to it--and on stock wheels, too. Back then, no big deal. Today, well, you'd stop and look.

Oh yeah that Civic is hot! 
 

I just realized that I'm not sure what the car is next to it. It's not a Lincoln. I thought it was a Mirada, but that's not it either.

Looks like an early-'80s Chrysler Imperial to me. (More pics on one here.)

Perhaps the bigger mystery: Who drove it to Nationals?
