any car that would have been eligible and legal to ice race during the '60's
and '70's. We are accepting anything up through '74, and certain cars up
through '79. If you want to run a '75 to '79 car, simply contact the event
coordinator, Mike Kamm at firstname.lastname@example.org or (518) 674-0520 for approval.
The car does not have to be an actual car that raced back in the day. All
Historic Class cars need to display a neat and clean appearance. We'd like to
see old cars come back out to race, but not cars with significant body damage.
We will not allow junk on the track.
Tire rules: We are hoping to see period correct tires, and every effort
should be made to use them if you have them. We want to make this exhibition
class as simple as possible, so we will run all cars together regardless of
what class of tire they are using. You can use rubber to ice, street studs, or
screw tires from the day. If you want to run something else, again contact me
via email or call me at  674-0520. No Menards will be allowed.
The "No Contact" rule [as in our Street Legal classes] will
be in effect for the Historic exhibition class races. We don't want these
classics to come back with black donut rings on the fenders. The track will be
plowed extra wide for plenty of safe racing room. Just as in the old days, no
roll cage will be required, but if you have one that's perfectly fine too.
Just like the current Street Legal Unstudded class, the Historic class will
draw out many former ice racers who have been on the sidelines for years just
waiting for an opportunity like this. Although we are all thinking about the
Saab 93's and 96's that will no doubt be headlining this vintage ice racing
spectacle, lets not forget that A.M.E.C. has had many other types of cars
running in their 40 year ice racing history. We hope to see some of these
return as well. They would include:
1. Original Mini Coopers
3. Early Mustangs
4. Datsun roadsters
5. Volvos- 544's, 122's, 144's
6. Citroen DS21s
7. Plymouth Barracuda
8. VW Beetles
10. Ford Falcons
