    Yeah I knew that, I didn't want to mention that on this forum [sounding morbid]
    I am more interested in that particular car [chassis # GT40P 1011] which is claimed to be resurrected again.
    But typical in the historic race-car scene, it is highly probable that some "bullshit artist" has built a replica using a genuine "nut & bolt" that came off that car and is now claiming it's provenance

    Ford shipped it home to be destroyed to avoid lawsuits, but it was believed to be stored at Holman & Moody [this is the grey area]

    While we are on the subject of Racing safety
    Here's some Racing on a Dirt Oval [Gloucester Park, Auckland NZ which closed in '64]

    The sanctioning body was a bit relaxed on driver safety

    Gloucester park 1.PNG Gloucester park 2.PNG Gloucester park 3.PNG

    And spectator safety

  16. The checker on the flags is not that sharp, but I believe that's just the clarity of the photo. Otherwise, everything else looks the same as on my '59 Chevy. I don't see anything wrong with it.
