One of the 2 1972 Firestone test cars is up for auction on BAT. Should be interesting to see where the bids go on this one. (EDIT: Looks like BOTH of them are listed)

Nice piece of history. It will be interesting to see how much it goes for and what the new owner does with it. FYI Firestone had a test center not to far from me here in Canfield Ohio, but I believe it was for tractor tires, but I could be wrong.

Had to open this and look. I recall seeing a book when I was in college that had high speed testing and tire contact patch photos at 130mph. The car used was a 71 with a 429CJ.
