      I think he might have meant "era correct" but either

      I think he means "era correct". I'm going to tell myself it was a dictation error to spare the small amount of faith in humanity I have left.

      Saw this car as you guys were pulling into this location actually. It was definitely one of my favorite and most memorable cars of the show.

      There is most definitely stance here, and it's perfect. Stance has been made into a bad word but it shouldn't be one.

      Such a great car.

      Even Jay Leno would look at this car and go "man, that's a big chin".

      Car looks great though.

      They are 911R tail lights. They save a good amount of weight over the stock parts as the stock housings are cast pot metal. These are just a plastic strip with Hella lenses mounted to it.

      Semantics, sure, but it is completely built and setup to be a race-car, just hasn't gotten there yet. Would you preferred I use "track-car"?

      It's not a race car until it has a logbook. What class is it built for?

      Cool car. Not a huge fan of Liveries unless it is a 100% racecar but it looks pretty period correct. Gotta love a nice ducktail and widebody though. Nice pics.

      Okay wait now I'm confused. I did a google image search for "washburn motorsports" and this car showed up, but NONE of the pics were of it on the track...

      Is this thing even tracked? Or did he just finish it and hasn't been able to take it out yet?
