Nice event there today, looked like a good turnout – great weather.
I got a good look at the 917 LH ("the Hippy Car") today with the hood open.
Let’s see – per the museum guys, we’re talking a car that weighs less than 2000 lbs with 550 hp. This car still holds the absolute lap record at LeMans, top speed about 240 mph 😯
The Grand Sport looked like the neglected step-child as folks crowded around the Daytona Coupe, GT40, and especailly the 917…. where were the "Chevy guys"?
