Wayne bought (another) new car! Who can guess what?

I picked up the Probe 16 in August. Very unusual car indeed, details here: Wayne bought a new car! Who can guess what?

Just got a new one that is equally as unique, rare and interesting:










Full story to follow soon.

Is that a custom built racer based on a Fiat? Is it a post-war Abarth?

I think you should restore it to before this dash badge was added, and I'll take it off your hands!



My favorite track, the year I was born.

Love it.

One of the automobile magazines or TV shows about a dozen years ago did a comparison of track performance of a 1930's race car with an aircraft engine like a Liberty compared to the latest Porsche GT2 or GT3.

The modern Porsche barely had a better lap time, the test driver commented that with modern tires the 1930's open wheel car would have won by a large margin.

Something like a 1960's Lotus 25, 29, 38, 43 or 49 (Jim Clark-ish) would be cool too. I'd imagine not as fun because it would be a museum piece.

It is a yet another cool toy for your collection. Please don't restore it, leave it as is, just get it running and stopping safely at most, and have some fun it it.
