Man, if you got the time, watch this, really interesting stuff. Its really something to see todays rallying compared to 50-60-70-80's even....almost like a disconnect, emotionless, corporate sponsorships.

In the early years you didnt have truck loads of parts, one part shows them asking a fellow passer-by for their DIFFERENTIAL lol, they swapped it to the rally car and were on their way.

The Lancia Stratos in the 70's and Group B Quattro S1 in the 80's. Holy FUUUUCKKKK

A little off topic, but reminds me stories from the 60's.. Guy would blow his SBC in qualifying or something and swap in the one out of tow vehicle to continue with the event.

Times have changed.

I think the drivers AND the spectators had loads of balls and dedication.
