Porsche 917 LH, what Hot Wheels should look like

Rusty Wednesday, 3/7/2018

Being a fan of the original sweet 16 cars that Mattel put out in the late 60's I am blown away by this new casting..Looks like vintage Steve McQueen ..On package;1971 24 Hours of Le Mans boasts advanced aerodynamics including a long-tail design and covered rear wheels...Could be a fun one to mod too...Now this is a Hot Wheels like they should be..

Shame one of my Gulf emblems is messed up,but hey it is going to be raced any way...

Nice score...saw this one listed somewhere. Glad it's a mainline rather than a premium. I guess that does't mean it'll be any easier to find but at least when I do, I won't have to shell out.

In the Quest for Speed...I always worry about any casting where the wheels are tucked inside the wheel well...usually not indicative to top line speed. Still a beauy of a casting though that aside.
