Wife says Model and I know better to say otherwise!! :D :D

She enjoys this game and spends about an hour looking at it trying to figure it out.


This has given her more respect for modeling!!!

Being an air-cooled car nut, I know the car fairly well. This week's Mystery car is Porsche 356/2-055, a purpose-built aerodynamically-optimized factory lightweight race car. It featured an all-aluminum skin over a production 356 shell and underbody. This example, one of roughly 50 built between 1949 and 1951, won it's class at the 24 Hours of LeMans in 1951, at an average speed of over 140 km/h. It was driven in the race by Porsche's French distributor Auguste Veuillet and co-driver Edmonde Mouche. This car continued to be successfully raced through 1955. It's been beautifully restored to the condition you see in Harry's photo and is now on display in Porsche's museum in Stuttgart.
