HD GoPro Video + Track Action Photography: Top 3 Mustang GT350s of Charlotte Motor Speedway

In the 1960s, almost all American cars came equipped with an 85-mph speedometer. Only the wildest exotics of the time dared go to 100-mph on the speedo – which was usually the ‘hoped for’ rather than ‘verified’ top speed….

So for this 65 GT350 to be so, so fast (and loud!) when howling around Charlotte Motor Speedway was really something to see, hear and feel resonating in your lungs — and brain — long after it has gone past.


Days later, I was still feeling the high-def bellow of these race-prepped GT350 Mustangs – in a good way.

Every time this machine fired up, the entire pit garage would jump a little bit – like a mortar had just landed nearby.

It was brutal up close, but the echo of the gigantic Charlotte Motor Speedway bowl worked to this car’s big advantage. It became a real crowd-pleaser in and of itself, with the soundtrack reinforcing the major speed this classic car achieved all day, every day of the Mustang 50th Anniversary celebration.

Our brave pilot is pictured here – and his speed is testament to the car as well as driver skill. Well done, sir!
