Can I borrow a couple grand from every GRMer to buy this? Please? Pretty please?

It's the real Mark Donohue '71 Javelin AMX Trans Am car! Winner of 7 of 9 races and single-handily ruined Trans Am for the other manufacturers. This car is the reason I love AMC's, it just looks so freaking mean! Droooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!

That's badass.

I've been looking at too many "replicas". Holy BMW E36, I'd forgotten how wild the real one was. I hope Canepa gets a million for it.

Someone should post some hi res pictures, you know, so we can all drool on our laptops.

I'm trying to pay another AMC'er that lives by it to go shoot hi-res for me! Can't let an opportunity like this go to waste...

You know, if we all chip in to buy it, that just means you have to let us all drive it from time to time.

Heck yeah, I'd do that! I could make a living trailering that beast to track days and historic races around the country for GRM'ers to drive.
