That is a great article in SCG - thanks to Craig and John. I had not seen that before or at least didn't remember it.
I used to wonder how much slower would I be if I had a chance to drive Donohue's car? at least 3-4 seconds a lap, I'm sure.
Of more interest would have been, if he had driven my old 67 and how much faster in it would he have been?
I raced agaiinst Paul at Mid-Ohio in 71 (Chaffey College camaro). It poured rain for the first half of the race, then dried up, and we only had the rain tires we started with and they were in shreds by the time the race was over. Paul was 17th qualifier and I was 20th(although qualifying was never a big deal for us - just get on the grid). That's the race I saw him driving the camaro down the road later with the dump cans etc sticking out of the rear window. I think he drove it out from CA and then back!
Milt could, imo, hold his own with the factory guys.
