    love that Opel in the first pic...think about the speed differential between the 911 and the Opel.

    There's an Opel that runs the Southeast vintage racing circuit driven by Ernie Bello. I'm happy when I'm faster in a 2ltr 911.

    Not sure. Brumos and Penske ran the 2 Porsches in the Watkins Glen 6 hour race and the Can-Am race the same weekend. The Brumos car was supposedly (rumored) the Daytona 24 hour winner that was sent back to Porsche with the Penske entry to be re-bodied for the Glen.

    The Brumos car was R7, former 1973 factory Le Mans #46. Brumos sold car to Hector Rebaque of Mexico who ran the car at Le Mans in 1974 in this "long tail" configuration.

    Found this on the forums from Hugh.
    it went back to the factory after Daytona - maybe as a part of a test program to see the impact of 24 hours of racing. the "scrapped" notation may be that it was pulled apart and inspected after the race and then rebuilt.

    After a 24 hour race you would have to do that anyway if you wanted to continue using it. I don't think that Brumos were short of cars to use in their race program so it probably would have been better off back at the factory - it may have even been a condition of them getting an "R" car in the first place.

    in any event it was sent back to Brumos as a longtail in about the start of July.
