1971 Mustang Mach 1 by AUTOart
Love this one (I so regret not snagging all three AA colors when they were $79.99.... hell, knowing what I know now... I would've purchased 4 cases! LoL! ) My friend had a blue/silver one back in the day. So.... I bought the only 1971 Autoart Mach I with silver trim.
1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Full thread to come.
A very nice looking car but even more unique looking rims.
@chris I read an article that addressed this car and the rims and according to the article they went with this rim because of the power output was causing the wire wheels to collapse. I don't remember what article it was but that was what it stated the reason was for using these rims. I know other 275 GTB's did have wire wheels.
Update, I found this at TopSpeed site:
The coupe rode on bespoke Borrani wire wheels wrapped in Dunlop tires and it was the last competition Ferrari to use wire rims. These were dropped after Ferrari discovered that the immense power of the engine coupled with the tremendous grip of the tires could overstress and break the spokes of the wheels. From then on, no competition Ferrari would be fitted with wire wheels again.
I found a photo of an actual 1967 model of this car with the solid rims on it:
THAT makes sense, thanks for the info.
How about a 1966 Toyota 2000GT, thread to follow later today.
The Greer Black Prudhomme 392 Hemi powered dragster and the Don Garlits Swamp Rat VIII 426 Hemi powered dragster. These are by GMP and are aluminum bodies.

So you think your Mustang, Camaro, Corvette or other sports car is fast? Well hold my beer and hang on, the "Li'l Red Express Truck" is coming through.
In 1978 due to smog equipment required on cars Dodge figured out that they could build a cool pickup that would out perform the performance cars because the trucks were not required to have all the smog equipment on them resulting in a pickup that was the fastest production vehicle in 1978 in the quarter mile.
I always really liked those trucks....so cool looking with the vertical exhaust stacks.

There is only one Porsche that I would want for my collection and it is an AUTOart no longer available new, it is midnight black one they sold.
Beep Beep, fastest thing on two feet!
1971 Plymouth Road Runner 440-6 pack. This one is by Auto World. Auto World did miss on these rims pretty bad, Highway 61 nailed this style rim.
