Iíve watched off and on EBay sales for the Jim Clark 1965 Lotus 33 #1 car, they are going for at least $350, was wondering about the #14 car driven by Graham Hill, reason is a local hobby shop has had the Hill car sitting for several years on sale at $165, same basic car but of course different driver, this hobby shop does not get a whole lot of traffic for 1/18 race cars apparently, . I guess anything Jim Clark is well sought after, the others not so much.

Shame about the Graham Hill car.
If you could get it at a discount, it's worth remembering Hill was a very good driver indeed.
So far he's the only driver to win Le Mans, the Indy 500 and the F1 world championship.
There are photographs (and footage) of him at end of year drinking enduro's (so he didn't take himself too seriously).
Add to that he's the only driver (so far) to have a son who also won the F1 world championship.
And last but by no means least, he could have played a classic cad/villain in any TV show with that mustache....   :yahoo:
