  2. if only those pics were bigger...
    and man, just look at the size of those rear tires!
     
  3. you´re wrong!
     
  4. I know the story... <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
    They did actually contain engines, etc, but they were put together very badly by inexperienced people just to meet the deadline, they barely ran at all. Afterwards they were rebuilt properly.
     
  5. to me, and I'm sure many others, it is very close to being the ultimate race car.

    it reached 400kmh at Le Mans, and this was 35 years ago!
     
  6. The 917/30 never raced at Le Mans.
     
  7. The 917/30 didn't race at LeMans!! It was a Cam-Am racer, only the closed versions of the 917 raced at LeMans!!! And to my remembrence it didn't reach 400 km/h, "only" 390 km/h!!! The only car to have passed 400 km/h at LeMans is the Peugeot 905 LM (405 km/h - 252 mph).
     
  8. didn't the peugeot's engine get totally #$%#ed after that run?
     
  9. What an ugly #$%#ing car that thing is.
     
  10. That is the true story.
     
  11. I would get pics of the Barrett Jackson one if I found my f'ing camera's USB cord.
     
  12. I didn't mean the 917/30 but the 917K. Yes, I think it only reached 390kmh.
     
  13. 917>962.
     
  14. LOL!... do well in math did you?? <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  15. 390 seems a bit optimistic to me, but it could be true.
     
  16. My favorite
     
  17. That's the original 'Wobbly Goblin' version on the 1969 sales brochure... there's no surviving 917's left in that configuration.
     
  18. there was a cool 917 up for sale by Lukas H�ni at Retro
     
  19. Wasn't the Moby Dick car a 917/30? that was a beautiful machine.
     
  20. an article about the white race-to-road conversion (S/N 917-021) by Achim Großmann:
     
  21. No, the Moby Dick is a 935

    1st pic is the Moby Dick, 2nd one is a 917/30
     
  22. Awesome! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> Vielen Dank Herr Zahn!
