Uproarious: This Video Featuring Jim Hall’s 1970 Camaro Trans-Am Racer Is Awesome – The Noise Is Epic
The history and the interesting mechanical bits here are just the teaser, the real payoff is seeing the car haul around and watching Drissi knock it up and down through the gears. Adding to the sweetness is the fact that it’s the last car that Jim Hall ever drove professionally before taking his talents exclusively to the design and engineering end of the spectrum of professional racing. Totally awesome.
Regarding Drissi, he has been a racer of note for decades now in vintage and road racing. He has competed in multiple levels of NASCAR competition as a road course specialist and is perhaps best known for his time in Trans-Am where he captured a championship and once or twice captured the ire of officials and other racers during competition. If you want to see a wild video just check out what happened between he and Amy Ruman at Mid-Ohio back in 2015.
The car, the collection it looks to be a part of, and the history here are astounding. Crank up the volume when that small block fires up!
