    I didn't know about this, but I'm now reading about it :)
    As a result it's not an intended clue, even though i knew there were Cadillacs in the song
    Also, you don't need to consider rain as a clue (as mentioned in the song)

    The clue is the speed or the distance in the song?

    I think the Cadillac Le Monstre is a lot cooler than the car in that story but that's neither hear nor there for this thread. Lettuce get back to the mystery at hand.

    Ok it is Bugatti, but I don't see the solution of puzzle :)

    Something of great with old France track is geoportail of France :)

    Indeed the drawing is quite bad for 66, Garage Vert was only one curb

    This was not an intended clue, but that's some good abstract thinking.
    Maybe some day I could make a historic Bugatti Circuit for a '67 F1, but not before this current track is complete

    There is still a big clue not noticed in Maybellene

    Coupe de Ville? Or Bumper to bumper and side to side to thing to Daytona?
    But Daytona 1967, G. Hill and Surtees didn't race and Graham never raced at Daytona indeed...

    And I found no F2 races at Daytona...

    PS: If you want to attack any old Le Mans layout, contact me, I have downloaded all geoportail aerial view :) and I'm sure MonSum and ethone were ok to reused what you want of course :p

    thanks for the offer :)

    A V8 Ford won the 1967 24 hours of Le Mans. Unless of course you were referring to doing one of the Out Run courses.

    The clue in Maybellene is directly link to the track or puzzle?

    both?

    for example, something like this would be linked to the track, and all the drivers in the puzzle (except for one who is only directly linked to the venue in that year), and linked to both the Chuck Berry songs...

    it's not specifically a highway i'm looking for though. Its more of a link that almost requires a knowledge of the track that i'm talking about, but the link is probably more about a car

    if you're sitting out there and are thinking "this had better be worth it, for all this nonsense"...

    If there are more than, say... 15 likes in the next few hours i'll drop a super-big 99.9% clue that basically gives it away.
    If this post doesn't get the likes then i'll try to string the puzzle out for a few more days

    to prolong the puzzle pain, like the post two below this one (#260)

    ok, like this post if you'd like the puzzle to continue.
    It might survive into Sunday (depending on your timezone)
