In the '70s and '80s it seemed normal to walk into an arcade and find a steering wheel attached to an arcade cabinet. Which treasured racing gaming experiences can you recall from the pre Gran Turismo days Question Console and PC are included too naturally. Pole Position was hard to beat. Cool

Sega's Outrun was cool for anyone that loved the Ferrari Testarossa in the '80s! Cool
