Since I am pretty sure we will never see this one in 1/18 scale, I thought I'd go ahead and place this as my Christmas Wish List:



Showed up in the Classified's of the November/December 2006 issue of "Vintage Motorsports" magazine.

Here's a picture of it back when it wasn't "vintage":



Anyone out there want to be my Secret Santa? :giggle

:cheers

This car is one of the primary reasons that they installed a "bus stop" chicane in the back straight at Daytona, for use with the infield road course. Back before they did that, once you exited the infield, in about the middle of the oval's turns one and two, it was flat out until you started braking for the road course turn one, which is just down track from the start finish line.

To me, when you look in the dictionary for the word: "groundpounder", this is the picture next to the definition.

Another version - This one is the "Spirit of LeMans", with the same front end/headlight cover treatment as the car in the ad:



:cheers
