I know this doesn’t belong in this section, but a good reminder on safety.

I saw it posted on another forum.

4.6 million views, but likely cost him some dental work. Kill switch and toe loop (blown cars) are good ideas for high performance cars!



He has a 50 minute version, but haven’t watched it.

Ouch. Not much said about the people who got hit.
Yeah, that is for sure. That video seems like evidence for a huge lawsuit if there wasn’t one already. But, I’m not a lawyer, so could be wrong.

The guys on another site said he boiled the brake fluid.

Real road racer, still competing.

Someone made some effort on this video.

Just picked up this 19 lb front clip and hood skin. Not sure what these are worth, but might add that vintage race car look.

Hood and front clip are 19lbs? They look like they are brand new.
Yes, they were never installed. :)

Not sure if that included the hood, maybe just the clip. He is a body man who was selling stuff to move south for retirement. He had a really nice early c3 he was in the process of selling (buyer securing loan). Paint was awesome.

It’s sitting in my dining room as it is to wide to go in the basement. :). That kind of sucks as the basement is big, dry, and empty. Will probably hang it in the garage or shop.

These don’t pop up too often and he had just cut the price to move it, so….

Kind of interesting, more of an early super car than vintage racer, cool story.
