Imagine going to a sports car or endurance race in the 1960s. A Can Am race might include exquisitely beautiful competition cars like the Ferrari 330, Ford GT40, and Jim Hall’s innovative Chaparrals. Those are all nice looking cars but I think Eric Broadley’s Lola T70 spyder, with its low, fluid lines, was the best of an outstanding bunch. This 1966 Mark II version of the T70 was on display at the 2014 Concours of America. So far I haven’t been able to determine what this car’s exact racing history was, but the Mk II T70 won an astounding 35 races out of the 89 that it started. You might notice the “REAGAN” sticker on the side of the car. Norm Smith, who raced Lolas with sponsorship from Joehnk Chevy, also was a supporter of Ronald Reagan when he was running for governor in California.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
