That certainly rounds out your collection. Congratulations!

(do you still have the 959?)

Still got the 959, the tank, the solar car, the fire truck, and a few other oddball ones. This car is currently at the Petersen Museum here in Los Angeles as part of their sci fi cars from Hollywood exhibit. Makes it real good day - the car is 21 miles away!

It hasnít run in ten years though and needs the mechanical gone thru. Should be interesting to say the least.

Wow, still looks futuristic today. Great addition to the fleet Wayne!

Its progressive design brings to mind the SR71 blackbird. Way ahead of its time, and still unequaled.

Is there such a thing as timelessly futuriistic. This car maybe an example.

Cheers Richard

Wow, crazy! I know about the 959, various other race cars, but I'm not sure I ever saw the solar car announcement or any other odd balls.

What engine and drivetrain does that car have?

Cool new toy for sure. Hopefully it is a common drivetrain and not based on some rare custom engine and mismatched transmission.

Nope, but it appears as if almost all of them are for sale, presumably for the right offer.

Cool car.
Maybe not financially mutually exclusive.

Car is very interesting. Wiki has some data but Heel n Toe confirmed the exact car early on.

Blow the Wiki pic up and check out how long it is. I suspect the one on Wiki is the other survivor out of three but not sure.

Nicely done, Wayne.

I'd ask you if you are enjoying life, but I think we can guess that you are...
