  1. I really like that! ? Very nice result on a classic race car! I saw them in person, circa '69-'70, at a Can-Am race here in central Texas. They were awesome and almost unbeatable racers! ?

  2. Another beauty on four wheels, John @jluetich
    My daughter is a fan of the papaya McLaren color, at least the F1 car.
    Will check with her what she thinks of this McLaren.

  3. I got to see an M8D run at Road America in the Chicago Historic Races in the early '90s. What a glorious sound! It was faster than every other car that weekend, including the Porsche 917K.

  4. Amazing build, John!
    What a beautiful race car!

  5. Very cool, love those old McLarens!

  6. Can Am cars were fabulous and this was probably the best.
