Sorry Mister Tom Sch, I did not see it.
The age, the vision, the lock down, sometimes confuse us. I apologise.


Irrelevant but your cars in the ‘’garage’’ are very beautiful and your videos are great .. I love your Carrera RS.

Paris-Dakar Rally Porsche 959 Plain Body Prints

This series of realistic plain body CGI posters by London-based digital production studio INK are designed to showcase the Paris-Dakar version of the 959 in the purist way possible – with no livery or sponsorship.

There are three posters in total, showing the side, front, and rear respectively, allowing you to buy just one or to get all three and install them side by side as a feature.

Each poster is printed on high quality paper at A2 size, that’s 16.5″ x 23.4″, and they ship rolled in a cardboard tube (with no frame). If you’d like to see more or buy your own you can click the link below to visit the store listing.
Are these details accurate?

It's like I'm seeing it for the first time without all the graphics on it.

The most famous Twister Special is the Mustang version from the same year, both the Torino and Mustang Twister Specials were sold in very limited numbers and they’re easily identifiable by the “twister” decals on the rear fenders.

First time seeing one in person, was parked just down the road. It's rare that a car gets so many petrolheads excited across the spectrum, especially one that isn't a super-duper-hyper car.

Looks like some of the 911s with body kits that the rich kids from NY who were attending GW or American U would bring into our dealership back in the day. Even has NY plates. So low you'd have to drive it up on wood blocks just to get a jack under it to get it on the lift. No thanks.

Influential Moments in Racing
https://tb98nj.wordpress.com/2017/01/

Quote:
Mercedes` backstory at Le Mans is…intriguing. They dropped out of Le Mans after the 1955 Disaster, but eventually eased their way back into it. By 1999, they had three cars as part of their team, and wanted to introduce a new prototype called the CLR to the track to replace the CLK GTR. An issue with the aerodynamics, however, made its way into the cars during construction, and was not picked up until the cars were finished.......…

Drivers return to action this morning for the start of final leg of 2019 East African Safari Classic Rally after a day’s rest in Tanzania.
What's an old car like that doing racing in Africa?



https://www.eastafricansafarirally.com/
Quote:

First run in 2003, the legendary East African Safari Classic Rally is a nine-day rally covering up to 5,000 kilometres through Kenya and Tanzania. Safari Classic rekindles the spirit of the original Safari Rally, which put East Africa on the motorsport map and earned an unassailable reputation as the world's toughest rally.

Open to two-wheel drive, normally aspirated, FIA rally cars built before 1986, Safari Classic replicates the incredible challenge of the original Safari and weaves a new adventure through the magical East African landscape, passing through world famous game parks and overnighting at many of the finest lodges in the cradle of Africa.

Every day on our marathon event brings once-in-a-lifetime moments, building to a truly unforgettable and life-changing experience. Explore our website and learn why this event is the most unique historic motorsport event anywhere on the planet.
