another GREAT classic !
double clutching, no rev limiters, bias ply tires, only foreign cars i saw was a few VW bugs.
he even showed some respect for the biker that crashed by checking to see if he was OK.
stunt guy didn't even wear leathers !!
growing up in that era i could name every car on the st.
good stuff...
