Which brings us back to why I'm sitting in the seat of Jere Clark's '71 Championship-winning, $1m Javelin on a deserted Infineon Raceway about to apply maximum death to the throttle. The series might have changed, but the original cars haven't, so the owners of the cars have made a Trans-Am series of their own for the '66-'72 cars. They call it Historic Trans-Am. And they asked if we'd like a go.
