Fantastic result. Those of us in the " poor penalty box " can only admire for afar. What a rush to drive. With open exhaust one could be the terror of a town.

Wow. What a great looking tribute. I wish I had the money, but after my 2017 GS purchase, I'm tapped out. Best of luck with the sale, whomever buys it is getting a fabulous car.

Here are some photos of the car on which my tribute is based. These were taken at the Monterey Historics approximately 30 years ago.
