This thread is for links to favorite sports car videos and videos of favorite sports cars. Please pile on and post up if you find something you like. Long, short, historic, recent, whatever, just remember sports cars are the theme.

Here are just two to start. The first, my favorite (so far), is a brilliant 41 minute recap of the 1965 Targa Florio. The second is a 2007 classics race from the Nurburgring. Enjoy.

Mine was the same color, but a 1966.

I'd love to drive that ^ bet you wish you still had it, eh?

Gotta love the Spitfire.

It was a great car Steve. All 75hp. It would have done well on the Dragon, but the trip down would not be fun.

The Cheetah was sort of a muscle sports car and meant to be Chevy's answer to Ford's Cobra but the project died off as explained in this first video. Most are replicas but this is an original.

From what I've read the short wheelbase made for a very twitchy car with diabolical handling....

Here's another fun, low power classic I always thought it would be fun to take for a spin.

Austin Healey Frog / Bug Eye Sprite.

That was a very cool car Steve. Yes, they were low power, but there was no such thing as "interstate highways" back then. On a two lane, they were just fine.

I'd love to drive this one...I'd settle for just seeing this one in person. Aston Martin DB4 Zagato, beautiful.



Not to be confused with the new Aston Martin V12 Zagato...also beautiful.

Posted elsewhere but I don't care. Lotus racing at Bathurst, the Mount Panorama circuit, Australia. Onboard drive from 16th to 1st in just a couple minutes!
