Something I've been meaning to share

PostFri Feb 24, 2012 9:13 am

I'm not sure if this is the right spot, but I saw these guys at the Philadelphia autoshow in January. I won't post all of the glorious, glorious things because I'm still trying to get Jeff to do a mystery car on some of them.

Please note the duct tape on the wheel

The 959 is a private vehicle, but the 250 LM and various cars behind it that are mostly not visible are from a museum in Philly. They run different groups of them on their lot out back every Sunday during the summer. I will be there on July 28th so that I can hear the glory of the a 917. I guess this kind of ruins one of the possible mystery cars and gives you a good idea if any of the others get poster, but here's the site: http://simeonemuseum.org/

Wow. I see red.
The 959 is the one supercar I've not seen in person. I was tricked one weekend when I caught out of the corner of my eye a 959 at Zim's here in DFW. I committed 3 moving violations to get back around to see it. It was a 911 with a crappy kit. :x

If you happen to be near my corner of PA in August or so I recommend coming here: http://www.newhopeautoshow.com/. That 959 has been there for a few years along with many other awesome cars.

My love affair with the 959 runs pretty deep... I saw one at a concours show once. It's one of those childhood automotive crushes that stuck, along with the Diablo and F40.
