So, say you bought a bunch of carbon fiber bodywork from a Penske P90 Indycar...

Now the dilemma - do I try to find one of the very few people in the world to buy the stuff, or do I make really cool shop art by simply hanging it around the showroom?

Personally, I'd find a cheap Miata and bolt it all on, but I'm weird like that.

I'd probably see if anyone is vintage racing one and see if they are interested.  Sometimes spares for cars like that are difficult to find.  A friend that was restoring a couple of the Nissan GTP cars ran into a bit of that.  It's either track down almost non-existent spares, or make it yourself.  Original spares would have been the preferred path and ultimately makes the car more desirable.

I see nothing 'artsy' with any of those pieces.   I say sell 'em.

Bolt them up on a go-kart?

Tease!

I expected to see a complete body.

Which I would have suggested would make a fine street/hill-climb car build.

What you have is really only useful for repairs to an original but should have some value.
