Had this one in the back of my mind for ages - T Bucket - tracknose - Le Mans Peugot 905 suspension, wheels & transaxle - Ford Nascar motor
Named it after the old Formula 5000 cars I used to watch as a teenager
Real one would be a blast!!

Beautiful !!
Reminds me of Chauvin Emmons' Watson nosed Indy-style roadster from the early '60's.

The helmet is a nice touch, but you better include a will.

Thanks for the positive feedback gentlemen
Austin - the mirrors came about because I wanted an F1 type wheel with paddle shifts so no dash. I just stuck some Evergreen tube in place of the dash, added the mirrors & some bog Turned out OK
Wayne - thanks for the Chauvin Emmons note. I looked him up. What an awesome life & so sad to loose him - The man built great cars & obviously had a LOT of fun doing it.
Cheers
Brian
