News Discussion - Buggy Books of History

Postby swiftsam » Thu Mar 05, 2009 3:03 pm

We just released our first in a series of buggy books from record-breaking years. Check it out in the News section:

Were you there in 1981? Any first hand accounts? Comments about much cooler buggy books used to be?

I'm really impressed how I got a feel for what buggy was like in 1981 by reading the buggy book. I wonder if the current books will still have that effect 20-30 years from now

What I found interesting about it was the big text blocks on each organization's page instead of a roster. Most buggy book pages I've seen have a roster, a picture of the buggy, and maybe a choice phrase. Nothing like the chest-thumping bravado on the CIA page or the meek, hopeless confession from Theta Xi. The only page in there that might fit in a modern-era book is the ZBT page, which shows a picture, the roster, and a quote from Rush.

That book makes me want to go watch the race, but it is a not a time-capsule for future buggy historians like most books are now. I think I like the feel of this book more. The assurance from the Safety Chair that all drivers will be adequately protected from radiation and pasta just makes it awesome.

The picture of the sweepstakes committee is the kind of awesome you can't buy.

Did anybody else notice that the safety chairman, aside from being the only male in the picture, also is the only one with glasses and the only one without a hat. Or shoes. Or pants!

50 mph? Not possible, I think the fastest clocked was Zoo's Colugo in '86 or '87 going 43 mph after a spin!

Colugo 38 mph by police radar 1984 - just before spinning, or rather, slamming into the bales with great force. The driver was, shall we say, a little heavier than ideal. The next fastest reading was 33 mph that year.

I now routinely get 35 mph on most top men's team rolls and 33mph on women's. SDC saw 36 last year.
