    All total I purchased 36 of these Strombecker Matra Sport and BRM Can Am cars. They are from the mid '60s and are all new old stock. They all have the same chassis and only one gram difference in body weight.
    The idea is to use them for a IROC series.
    The reason for so many is that I'm quite sure exact replacement parts are pretty scarce. So many will end up as parts cars for the intended 10 that will actually race.
    They are low detail bodies so not a lot of little parts to get broken off and they were designed as no magnet cars and hold the track very well.
    There are numerous opertunities to learn tuning and refinment techniques, trueing the wheels and tires etc...
    So far on my small test track the performance is almost identical from car to car. Ones that were slower have so far been limited to simple tuning to get back where they should be.
    In the one picture you can see what they look like painted and new numbers.
    I'll update when we actually start to race later in the year.

        I've decided on a layout for our track.
        It's Carrera Evolution track,.
        All straights are standard and all curves are 1/60's.
        It measures just over 32 feet and fits on two 4 x 8 sheets.

        Picture is shown with boarders that I don't currently have.
        I would love to have the real Carrera boarders but more than
        likely will have to make them, a little less cost 🙂
