    Anyone know this SL-C for sale on ebay?

    Woah, there, easy on the boat comments....I have a decent 20 runabout that goes decently fast, fitted with a high end GPS chartplotter and radios. It is really not at all expensive to keep going.. I do pay for year round indoor marina with launching service, but all-in, insurance and maintenance...

    I am quite sure that the new Ford GT is designed not so much as limited production sports car with universal appeal, but as a fully "homologated limited production sports car that can compete in LeMans as a varient of GT production based car class. It would be the first production sports car to...

    It's Official - New GT

    Well....it may be technically interesting, but in my eye, it is as ugly as a damaged insect.

    Oh yes, DO I know about low clearance and overhang..My daily driver is C5 Corvette lowered a long way down..I have about 3 and half inches under-clearance...and the front overhang is ALWAYS hitting..This coming year I need to add metal to the skids under the front, so much as worn off! I am...

    The M20...last of the series Pete Lyons has a nice set of photos on his website. McLaren M20 1972-73-74 - Images | petelyons.com This completely fits with the RACE Car Replica theme, and would make a nice companion to the T-70, P4, 917, and GT40.....The mono chassis is beginning to show the...

    True, and explains the reason that so many ugly cars sell so well.....and draw a massive crowd. ..even if they are not "attractive" in the classic sense... We must never equate exotic/rare for beautiful/artistic...both will have a following...but the artist in me sees the difference in a...

    You know......many of the new designs that have come out in the past decade or so, well in my view they really suck...Lotus lost it..they look like angry insects..Corvette lost it..the flowing c5 [ which I own as a daily driver] turned to a designed by committee mess...Ferrari lost a some of the...

    I wonder if this is from a different design house than the last few were from? This has some hints back to the 70s, think of the one or two show cars that Pininfarina did back then, and I think there is some of the genetics of that in here, not a lot, but enough to be vaguely familiar. Think of...

    Transmission foward of engine, between driver and passenger, transfer case there too, then fore and aft heading drive shafts to diffs at each end, rear offset from centerline to accommodate the drive-shaft being adjacent to the engine block . Grazino has off the shelf parts, as they already make...

    RCR's Next car should be.....

    A nice variation on the GT40.....Not a huge success in racing, but the Mirages were a stop-gap until a lighter more modern car could be developed. I beleive that 3 were built, but that one or two of them have been converted to full width GT40 winscreen and cabin. I'm sure that some of the...

    I know what you mean...the rear of this silly car is actually reminiscent of the rear end of my boat..except for the outdrive where the center bulge is on the car. The outer bulges look just like the corresponding bulges on the rear of my hull...under the rear platform. I DO believe that Fran...

    A Porsche hillclimb car:shy:....The existing RCR 917 wide wheel chassis fitted for the usual 6 Cylinder, and an open bodywork inspired by this 910 hillclimb racecar..what a fun summer runabout and autocross special this would make! :thumbsup:
