    It was seen as preferable to be thrown from the car in a crash.

    i saw the episode of chasing classic cars that detailed it. Pretty damn cool. Apparently they weren't sure if it was the actual car with race history since they were all built from pieces of other cars when they needed to be repaired. something like that.

    Common for race cars, especially the older ones. The 917 Porsches for instance.

    if youve ever seen the episode of chasing classic cars where they find a bugatti in a barn and auction it off at a car show i was at that auction, it was pretty sweet to see something go for that much money that was just found

    So basically you'd sneeze and come at the same time? Awkward.

    Anyway, didn't those cars run on some kind of fuel that produced toxic exhaust?
