    There used to be a show called Car and Track on TV. Bobby Unser appeared frequently. In addition to his Indy Car exploits he was very successful at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb race...usually driving Fords. 
    If you're angry, frustrated or crazy and feel you have to kill someone...start with yourself!
