    I don't care for those supposedly sporty SUV monstrosities either. People buy them so they will make them & sell them.

    Too bad the sign on the building behind the car doesn't say "better call Saul".

    Ha! First new car I ever bought was an 1980 model and I think it and my current 2014 Mini are pretty close in size.

    I know where there are a few of those race prepped LeCar's, including one raced in the LeCar Cup by a team from Car and Driver Magazine. I've already put dibs on it.

    Those LeCar Cup races were a lot of fun to watch. I remember a long train of them droning around Mid-Ohio in slow motion. It was close racing & a hoot to watch. I wish some maker would subsidize a one make series like Renault did back then.

    Yep....my buddies dad and brothers all raced in that series. He and I were part of the crews and did a lot of prep work and helped out at the track. That's how I needed up buying a LeCar and why I want to make sure the ex C&D car doesn't end up in the scrap heap. It's a part of racing history and deserves to be preserved.

    My neighbor, who is a Porsche aficionado, recently had his 356 undergo a complete ground up rebuild, then had an artist capture his Porsche in a painting.... Apparently he liked my shop as a backdrop....:D
