        No the 917s were later cars. They were open and closed cockpit cars. A little safer than the early open wheel cars. Nothing like 200mph with 1000+hp in a 1700lb chassis.

        I do all kinds of race fabrication, including some vintage work. Unfortunately those pics were not in my shop. I would rather have the 962. It was a better car, but I still mourn the days gone by when ***** to the wall racing was what it was about. Porsche spent more money than anyone else in the world to win. Magnesium chassis, titanium uprights, magnesium transmissions, berrylium pistons, the best and lightest of everything.

          You betcha.

          I'll never forget Jan Lammers and Martin Brundle maxing out the Jaguar XJR GTP at the Del Mar Grand Prix back in the day. Another one was Klaus Ludwig tearing up the corkscrew at Laguna Seca in the Ford GTP (4 cylinders!). Wow! I was all of 12 or 13 years old.

          I hate to say it, but ALMS seems so watered down compared to IMSA GTP.

          Send me a PM when you get that 962C in your shop.

          I still have the brochure when I was at the vintage races at Laguna Seca back in '82. Imprinted in my memory is Jacky Ickx flat out in the Jules 936. That's what I'm talking about! What a sound!
