Went yesterday. No aluminum cars racing, only the WRS and RSK on rapid parade laps. Did see the 917's and everything newer. Old stuff in the big tent- in the flesh history of everything raced!
Russ of Fibersteel had a car just outside the tent- dented 1950's California plate, super patinated flatted paint & old looking interior, correct factory type frame. Did double take on engine as it was type 1 with upward angled Porsche type valve covers and correct double entry fan shroud. Exhaust location and narrowed intake manifolds were the only clues to engine type, otherwise. Russ says he'll install a type 4 & belly pan next time to add to the illusion.

The aluminum cars raced on Saturday. 550, 550A, etc. Builder in the vendor area is doing aluminum 550s, $275k with Type 1, presumably $500K+ with 547.
Drove my Spyder up and am having an excellent time (not home yet). 😀
