    All the old race cars scare the shit out of me... open wheel race cars with no roll cages.

    Even the relatively modern Indy Cars like Johnny Rutherford's 1980 Indy winning ride required the drivers feet to extended into the nose cone and stick out past the front wheels. A trip into the wall was a good way to end up crippled for life like Danny Ongais learned the hard way.
