    A Shiny Thing archetype-- it exists only to compel & look cool and pulls it off really well.

    I think I want one.

    Two of them have some rather serious holes developing in the crown -

    I'm thinking these made into candles "Mandles" would be way cooler on the kitchen island than her Girly candles:lol3

    Partly right - its a 4-cam Carrera engine but its originally out of 550 Spyder #550-022.

    I remember when mortals like myself could stand next to cars like that . Occasionally even touching them .

    This is one of my best friends in his 550A Spyder at an autocross in the mid-1970's. I think he paid around $4500 for this car in 1973 and he sold it in 1978 for $6800. I could have bought it from him for $6000. It is 550-0113 and its worth somewhere around $1.2 million today.

    Here are a couple of pics of my Air Cooled baby. I took her down to Monterey last year with the wife for the Rennsport Reunion IV. Great trip.
