Car Fun

Ron gets a really swoopy no-prize for bringing us news of the completion of the first Scarab replica kit-car bodies. Widely considered the prettiest of the front-engined sports car racers popular in the late '50s, it was nevertheless a real handful to drive. I'm pretty sure it's a Scarab that helped make one of the more famous pictures of the Mulsanne straight, shown rocketing down that roadway at over 160 mph with both front wheels several inches off the ground.
