Well one consolation is that you can play Auto Id solitaire - you can select your own subject then try to work out what it is! Thanks to Michael and Bill for the information and thanks Matt for posting it in the first place and for brightening up my evening! Cheers, -Don.
Yeah, I never imagined anyone would attempt such a thing on a 911. Like another band trying to cover a Beatles song - it just isn't going to work. So we'll overlook the fact that this isn't a production car 'cause it was so interesting. It looks like it might have been a road car not a 'pure' racer which may explain why when I passed through Aachen in '68 the streets were deserted. Keep 'em coming Michael! -Don.
A dreadful thing... I knew it was a Fairthorpe (founder was Air Vice Marshall Donald Clyfford Tyndall Bennet, CB, CBE, DSO) but the Electron that it was based on didn't have all the hideous fibreglass and plop all over it - and sure enough it's a reincarnation from the 80's masterminded by his son, Torix. It was designed to fit a V8. I'm not making this up.... Thankfully this particular one only has a 2.3 litre Ford V6 in it. Thanks, -Don.
