...remember... this is racing!

Sorry, Interstate has a speed limit.
And Belizio? That would be horse and buggy racing.
Or am I being to literal in interpreting the associative qualities of a 1980s revival of a 1950s revival of an 1850s typeface?

Well it's something to consider, but not the absolute word.
After all, Saab uses Gill Sans as its corporate face, which I think is inappropriate, and it doesn't seem to be an issue.
But I think Chris' advice is good, which seems to be that if you're going for the contemporary look of, say, slab serifs, use a present-day original design, rather than a revival.
