In the Can-Am Pits: Road Atlanta 1972
Let’s walk among the trumpets and crazy wide slicks of the 1972 Can-Am paddock at Road Atlanta. Maybe I over-romanticize the history of motor racing—okay, definitely—but wandering among the teams here looks much more like any amateur vintage race happening this weekend than the velvet-rope, VIP charade of top-shelf racing in the modern era. You can argue safety and engineering advances, but you’ll never make me believe that fan access is better now.

I dont think you ‘over-romanticize’ atall ; you merely recognise [accurately] how great it was then, and how much it sucks now. Thats all.
