    1969 PORSCHE 917K, MARTINI LIVERY, THE 917 IS ARGUABLY THE FINEST SPORTS-PROTOTYPE CAR EVER BUILT AND THIS IS ARGUABLY THE FINEST EXAMPLE AVAILABLE. ESSENTIALLY A ONE OWNER CAR FROM NEW, THIS CAR, CHASSIS 917.020, WAS RACED BY THE FACTORY IN MANY IMPORTANT RACES. ITS CROWNING MOMENT CAME IN 1971 WHEN IT WON THE 12 HOURS OF SEBRING IN THE HANDS OF VIC ELFORD & GERARD LARROUSSE, THEREBY MAKING IT ONE OF ONLY FIVE 917s NOW OUTSIDE OF FACTORY OWNERSHIP, TO WIN A MAJOR WORLD ENDURANCE CHAMPIONSHIP RACE. FULLY RESTORED AND IN SUPERB SHAPE IT IS READY TO HEAD ANY COLLECTION OR TO COMPETE IN ANY MAJOR VINTAGE ENDURANCE EVENT $P.O.A.

  12. I sometimes look to see if I can find my goofy ass wandering around in the background of other people's photos. Lucky for them I haven't found myself yet! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  13. I'd give my right testi!
     
  14. You didn't have those pics?!
    This car, along with 962C Dauer are the best racing cars ever build and nothing will change that!
     
  15. I've got better pics of it, but seeing one for sale always makes me want to earn loads of money
