I thought that there was a lack of Jag content......

These guys came up to Canada and ran at my track (at different times) when I was also running (thankfully not in the same race!)  The V12 XKE set a lap record.  It was 1978 for the XJS and earlier for the Huffaker XKE.

 

The car is a Group 44  car not a Huffaker car. The Huffaker car  had a single seat  rollbar

Umm, isn't that livery right about the same age as the car it's on? I mean, it's super-duper cool but I'm not sure "vintage livery on modern car" applies ;)

Since when do "Shameless self promotion" and "logic" co-exist?? cheeky

So 1978 Trans Am and circa 1974 for the Huffaker Jag at Westwood for a rare international SCCA National?

Yup - and you are right - not many races for SCCA are credited up in Canada. We got Terry Visger in a Huffaker MGB and a really fast Volvo P1800 (I forget who was driving) plus Dick Workman in a 427 Cobra and several cars I don't recall in detail.

I checked my dates.  First NASCAR race at Westwood was 1973, the first SCCA National and the first ever outside the US was 1975, and the first Transam was 1977.

I switched to vintage racing when that started in 1981.

I was thinking the same thing - can't say I've seen that livery before, but I it looks great!

I wanted to put this pain scheme on a local dirt track car, including the number, and have it say "Thanks for the help from our secret supporters."

I remember BRE also fielded some Datsun 510's in the under 2 liter Trans Am and wrested the championship from Alfa Romeo's GTV coupes.

In reply to preach (dudeist priest) :

IIRC there was a spec series for Caymans where all the cars were dressed up in vintage Porsche liveries. I suspect the wing is the one required for the series.

Check this flikr album for a bunch of pics of coplay Caymen.

A few highlights.

There's a lot more subtlety to this design than you see at first glance. I like it.

(this car probably wouldn't be allowed to race in Canada)

Shameless self-promotion here too... I used the livery from Apple's only sponsorship deal as inspiration for a PRO3 car (similar to Spec E30). Unfortunately the car was destroyed and when I built a new car, I'd learned my lesson and the livery was much simpler

My 93' Probe GT is getting either the Martini livery (Ford used it on their rally Escorts at the time) or the 7-11 livery the Mustang Probe used in IMSA GTP, once I sort out the body work.

Referencing the Cayman above, when is someone in LeMons going to replicate the livery with 'Oroblram' on it?

I sold my 09 Cayman last year and put the money into my wife's business (sad face). Ohlins, Tarett, IPD, Remus etc etc. Best car I've owned, or driven, for that matter.

30+ track days in 5 years, never missed a beat and needed only tires, brakes and oil changes. She is missed.

Miata seats, Miata door handles, overall Miata proportions. Is this real or just a rendering.  I like it.

I would do the 7-11 livery. It was on Fords in every type of racing at the time, nascar and nhra too, and is a good looking car.

That just would have been something I found on an image search.  Searching for it again being this which states its all just a rendering/fake.
