    Skinny tires, a shift lever, a beautiful car and one of the worlds best drivers. Lots to like. Compare to modern day F1 speeds, tracks and dangerous obstacles it was no wonder we lost so many drivers back then.

    Way back when (almost 20 years) I remember a racing game for the PC (which I couldn't play as I didn't have a computer). Don't remember the title but the tagline in the ad was "In 1968 rules were enacted in F1 to make racing safer. Welcome to 1967." Had a photo of an F1 car cresting a hill with all four tires in the air and it looked like it was an awful lot of fun! I feel lucky to live in Oshkosh with EAA and also less than an hour away from Road America where I can see these wonderful machines occasionally.

    That game was Papyrus' "Grand Prix Legends"
    I spent many hours playing it....

    Two of my favorites of all time, the Maserati 250F and the immortal Fangio.

    Quite some time ago I paid around A$10:00 each for three CDs, 'Fangio', Pikes Peak 'Cloud Dance' and 'Rendezvous', which was expensive at the time but so worth it!
    Nice reminder Ed.

    Have a close look at the long shot around 2.10 on the video, a perfectly executed drift. Brilliant.

    I wonder if it will work on today's machines or if GOG Galaxy will bring it out? I would like to try it! ( I would also like to have Aces High, MiG Alley again. That was my first flight sim.)
