There is one being restored up here in the Portland, Oregon area. Jeez
those things are small. This one is set up like the double 12 race cars.
It's scary to think that this cars averaged over 60mph in that race. Just
going 60 in one would probably scare the heck out of me. The mechanincal
brakes would just add to the whole adventure.

At the GoF West in 95 in Ventura there was another un-restored M for sale,
and one in process of being restored.
