This 1965 Porsche 356C race car is said to have been built in the early ’80s by the head of competition at Brumos Porsche, then raced by Bob Snodgrass himself for several years. It has logbooks to document those years of racing, and was sold to the current owner in 1985 by a Brumos salesperson by the name of Brian Redman. Find it here on Hemmings in Verona, Wisconsin for $69, 500.
The red and gold paint was applied when the car was transformed for track duty, and it still looks sharp. We consider this look with the wide stripes and Fuchs wheels to be heavily Club Sport inspired, and though not the look from when this car was new, it can still be done well. The list of tracks where this car has run is impressive.
The interior will please racers instead of restorers, and it looks well organized. The safety equipment appears to be up to date with a full roll cage, 6-point harness, and Kirkey seat with back support.

My favorite car was a 67 Sunbeam Alpine2006-08-23 10:50:30 by autotek
Got it in 68 with 12kmi.I put an Abarth exhaust onit.It had a hardtop for the winter and was warm and dry.In the spring I would take it off and drive with a tonneau cover so only the drivers area was open with the top down.The heater on full blast and I was comfortable.I put in a Blaupunkt AM/FM which was a bog deal back then.I has a bookshelf speaker for the rear seat.I would tune the radio in FM between stations and it would pick up the ignition system.I would accelerate with just the front speaker then at 4krpm turn on the rear speaker.It sounded like a jet taking off,especialy when I was stoned.
