Maryland equally so.

Curious how you know the Daytona was one of the 6 built. Multi million dollar cars, they don't see the track very often except maybe someone will run one at Goodwood.

Superformance makes very faithful replicas, and Brock has their endorsement.

Owned, loved, enjoyed, and now gone:
1969 Europa S2 Blue
1970 Europa S2 White
1974 Europa Twin Cam Blue
1974 Europa Twin Cam Blue
1984 Turbo Esprit Calypso Red
2005 Elise Starlight Black
2005 Elise Saffron Yellow
2005 Elise Ardent Red
2006 Exige Graphite Grey
2007 Exige Canyon Red

Other:
1970 MGB GT
1970 Datsun 510
1984 Honda CRX Si
1984 Pontiac Fiero
2004 Chrysler Crossfire
2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe

I know it because that's what I was told by the owner / driver. I believe it because said owner / driver has a net worth of $44 billion, or thereabouts.

^ I believe it. That looks like the same #9 that hit the tire wall at Laguna Seca years ago, was fully restored, and made it to Goodwood in time for the reunion.

Bingo!

I'm off to Goodwood for the first time this year. Pretty excited. It's been at the top of my bucket list since I went to Le Mans in '01 & '02.

Hey everyone. Thanks so much for helping me get a pulse on what my car is worth and whether I should return aspects of it closer to stock. I have LOVED this car since I got it in March of '06. Given that this thread has served it's purpose, I'll ask the moderators to close it.

Yours in the bonds,
