    Is that the actual car and has been restored to its racing heritage or is it a clone?

    Looks to me that it may be a clone according to what Jeff posted.

    I figured it was but was hoping for an amazing story of how it was retired and turned into a custom street machine that was returned to its former glory!

    If that's what it is then I'd be more than happy to hear that. I'll quote 'em and see what he has to say.

    Thanks for the update Jeff. I figured it may be but it's not a biggie. 'Preciate you taggin' along and for the information as I'll be able to find a few more pictures now.

    Pete: Always good to have you along as well bro.

    Photos like this are priceless in scale replication Jeff. Thanks a million!!! Two questions....1.) You wouldn't happen to know what color/ shade of blue that is would you? and 2.) Is there any way to get in touch with the fellas that cloned this in order to obtain any interior photo shots or do you have any? You sir.....are da MAN!!! [​IMG]
