Not my favorite car, but of the same era as the car you posted. I had to see this car everyday at work along with many others owned by a very rich collector.

I used to help him start his fleet once or twice a year. Maybe I will post some more.

I restored one of these,

Geoff Brabham's 86' or 88' GTP car. Same rich guy owned it.

"I Hated this car"! Hard to push around the shop, just plain hard to work on because its on the ground...

The noise this thing makes is from another world. There are many other great noises in racing, but this is at least in the top 5. And a good looking car to boot.

Another favorite of mine for the noise it DOESN'T make. That while being dead stone reliable and pretty much all-conquering when it was competing. I really miss the big manufacturers battling it out in LMP1 and LMP2.

Al Unser Jr. One of his 1986 championship year cars, the rich guy I worked for owned one of these also. I did not have to work on this car at all. It was purchased in perfect condition which is rare. The boss used to drive this car in the big gated industrial park every once in a while, yes, it would scrub the tub skid plate only going 20/30mph's. Motor Sounded Bad*ss on this one!

I also used to work with a few X crew members of AL Jr.'s team, and Chip Ganassi Racing team.

This was the Boss man's favorite and supposedly most expensive at that time. He did used to play/fake nostalgia race this Lotus at laguna seca raceway.

This was a 63 or 64, Documented, and supposedly #23 of 24, or # 21 of 22, I don't remember. Very rare car! And there sure are not 22 or 24 of these cars that survived the racing year, only a handful of these cars exist.

Eta; This is an F2 car, and this is not his actual car.
