Maybe it is a dialysis machine. He figured he be in the car for a couple of hours anyway.

In response to your inquiry regarding our coverage of the September 2020 Road America historics and the shadowy object in the C3 Vette, the PAG Graphic Blandishment and Photoshoppery Brigade has gone back to the original RAW photo file. Using our moderately advanced exposure compensation equipment, the team thinks that the cylinder in question looks to be the fuel cell. Far from being the safer, rubber bladder-type commonly used in modern cars, it seems to be a thing of aluminum. Vintagely dangerous and accurate.This theory is borne out by the two large hoses heading to the firewall and the steel straps securing the vessel in its place. Your estimation that this is rectally pucker-worthy seems right on. Please see the attached adjusted full-resolution image for your own assessment. If you favor a different theory, the team would be interested to hear it.

Second possibility was that it is a Big Gulp, as evidenced by the cap located at a handy angle for the driver's convenience during hot summer laps.
MY mistake calling it Road Atlanta, it's Road America.

All these years, one of my favorites, I never noticed the 4dr hardtop had a different back window.

and side windows ...

xoxoxoBruce 09-29-2020 09:25 AM

Well the side windows is what makes it a "hardtop" or not, so they are at the forefront of identifying the model along with the number of doors.

Diaphone Jim 09-29-2020 08:01 PM

I think the original designer was gone by the time they got to that window.

Those guys have obviously never driven the Sure-Kill expressway at rush hour.

I wasn't aware Subaru has a windshield wiper heater, sounds like a good idea.
