Toyota 2000GT

Toyota sports 800 is also a fine car.

I talked to a guy who owned a factory converted 196something testarossa. He was tuning his carbs. All 6 of them. With 2 barrels each. It took him a while.

Speaking of Flip, one of the best looking race cars was the Mercedes CLK-GTR, especially in the "naked model" livery.
This car is infamous as the car that flipped (in two different incidents) at Le Mans.

I couldn't find good pictures of the real car, so here are some shots of a well-done model:

Tell her to buy a post 1968 Citroen DS, or DSuper. The driving lights turn with the steering and illuminate around curves nicely.

I've taken some cool shots of the Audi R8. OK, it's not the R10 TDI, but it's the legendary predecessor.
