Very very clean. But also kind of goofy. It was on ebay last month. Starting price of $12k. No bids.

looks like its got a TEC2 under the hood. The rims and wing make me wanna puke, of course bronze heliums on a red car arent the best looking combo either.

Oh and is it just me or does the name "Dick Smothers" strike you as kinda funny lol?

Lose the wing and change the wheels, and 8K sounds like a good deal to me - but lately clean stock NA's are asking around 5-6K up here.

Smothers raced F5000 in 1970 in a Lotus 70, was good enough to make a run at the title, but CBS made him quit to protect their TV show. Friend of mine bought the car, ran it in a bunch in VSCCA races, then sold it to some Certified Rich Guy in England. I helped out with prep and in the pits, but never got to drive it Mmmmmm - 1400 lbs, 5-liter Traco-built Chevy, Hewland LG transaxle, BIG ol' Hoosiers. Used to have a picture of it as my avatar.
