I fixed some of my old links. (Darn this was an old thread!)

I also like Courtney's Falcon . . . especially right after his clinched the Championship!


I think I do need to post Glidden's '87 Pro-Stock Thunderbird as well . . . as it might be my favorite all time drag-car.

This 1973 Zastava (Yugo) 101 that won first 3 places in 1973 and 1974 Tour D'Europe. I would love to restore it in a original condition, it's currently sitting in some garage in Kragujevac, Serbia.
Nice list!

Finally someone mentioned the Lotus JPS. But I think that one is around '78 when Andretti was driving wasn't it?

** when I googled it I found these pics!




"And since the Lotus 78 is powered by a Ford, the Boss Mustang (also from the seventees) seemed to be a good option."

1) My favorite Race Car with my favorite driver and friend Tommy Kendall. In 1997 he won 11 straight races out of 13 total races that year!

2) Ford Cobra Daytona Coupe.

3) Panoz Esparante GTR 1

4) UOP Shadow DB4 (I know its a Chevy,but I liked the sinister look)

5) Ford GT 40, the most beautiful shape ever!!
