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!!

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

This thing is so cool, real unique. Not to mention its hammered to the ground. Everything just flows very nicely like its supposed to be that way. You have one hell of an imagination, nice build.
