    We saw this car 2-3 years ago at the DC auto show. I was amazed at the shape it was in. On one hand, it was cool that it was so original, but OTOH, I think it could at least be cleaned up a little. I remember looking at the headers and thinking they could definitely use a rattle can of paint.

    Craig's,

    I know what you are saying, but thought it was cool to see the years of racing, dents , scratches etc.

    It's only in original condition once. Worth more that way.
    A little bit at a time will get it done.

    I think Simeone spent some time considering what to do with the coupe. In the end, they decided that all the others had been taken back to pretty much as-built condition with their fancy clothes and bowler hats, etc., and that this was the only opportunity left to see one in its authentic work clothes.
