    I like old stock car re-runs from the '70s and earlier; today's Nextel Cup stuff does nothing for me.... it's the pro wrestling of motorsports...

    Well, the problem, of course, is that NASCAR, contrary to its name, is NOT "stock car racing." It comes closer and closer to a "spec racing" program, where every car is identical, every engine is identical, and nothing relates to reality. In the day (1950's), drivers actually won NASCAR races in cars they had rented that morning at Hertz!

    Today's cars are the peak of 1960's technology, too.

    I say they should race with cars that have body panels from a car off the showroom floor (although the frame would have to be a tube-type space frame), and only with an engine and drive train available from a dealer in that car. Your Monte Carlo is front-wheel-drive? Fine...that's what it will have to be at the track, too.
