Vintage racing Ferraris and Maseratis at the 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and AJ Foyt's 1960 Kurtis/Epperly Indianapolis 500 car from the Monterey Historic Races at Laguna Seca. All of these machines were built as weapons with a very specific purpose. The No. 8 Ferrari is in bare metal, and the Maserati wears lumpy, hand-welded seams out in the open. Foyt's Indy car is basically a seat attached to a modified airplane fuselage. Stirling Moss told me that that cars he raced during that time didn't have seatbelts because you had a better chance of surviving if you were thrown clear of a wreck and the inevitable fire it caused.
