I had no idea that Acura was in IMSA GTP... why don't realtime have an ALMS team with Acura...I had never thought of that until just this moment.

They ran a Camel lights car for a little while, I believe Parker Johnstone was the driver.

Wonder what number that yellow ITR is. Awesome to see the Realtime/Comptech cars in there too. Quite a collection!

Fill that room with Amber so scientists millions of years from now can think, "You know what, they weren't so dumb after all."

In reply to MiatarPowar:

Sport Compact Car wrote an article on the Car and it's driver. I think they use to call him Honda Bob or something. I think they would use Motorcycle pistons in that engine and they would blow so often that after a while they got so good at changing internals that they could remove the engine, replace the internals and have the engine running in an hour.

I cant find the post online anywhere, can someone help me find more info on it? Does anyone know the driver's name?

All of the "futuristic" concept cars look a lot like some cars today! They're still a bit flashier, but the little green hatch, for example, reminds me of the funky Volvo hatch that came out a few years ago.

Awesome. I love the Mugen CRX race car.

But no S600/S800?

Wow, all kinds of cool stuff. The RIBI fork RC250 brings back some memories...

When it was being tested (by no less than Roger DeCoster), Honda kept it very hush hush, wouldn't allow pictures, etc. AFAIK the bike never actually made a race debut, Honda inferred that it had been crushed. Then around 1996? DIRT RIDER magazine got an invite into the Honda skunk works storage area and lo and behold there it was.

It's a real shame that they're going to keep the place on lockdown like that. There's some great history there that should be shared, IMHO.

A great collection.

This one I have seen in print and I loved it then, love it now. When we finally get around to painting the Scirocco this is the scheme Chuck wants.

I can't believe no one's written a book about Bolus & Snopes yet. I wonder whatever happened to that damn mule.

I did find one period pic of one of these B&S Civics, down at the bottom, there's the #72 car at the 1978 June Sprints.

Pretty impressive to see that many influential designs in one place. So many of them were so successful that they're commonplace to us now. Just used cars.
