Well, with some help, including some people here I was finally able to finish this car.
The story goes, that as a kid I always loved the Chaparral cars and I wanted one of these but couldn't afford it.
Forward 25 years and I started collecting parts from yard sales and antique stores. Even with this, it took awhile to collect all the pieces that I needed, this project was on and off again for the next 30 plus years until I just finished it days ago.
The thing that makes this unique is the articulating wing that moves under braking like the real thing.

so enjoy...

Marvelous. 30 years, aged to perfection.

Yes, as Ron asked are you going to run it?

What makes this car rare is the fact it was outlawed due to the fact it use a underbody venturi system. This system created a vacuum under the car. Well guess what, this blew all the track debris out the rear onto the cars following behind.  Apparent as the back end of the car had huge exhaust screens. Cutting edge stuff at the time!!!  Can somebody say, worlds fastest Hoover ,Mark

I've run it a few times doing motor tests and what not, it will see the track but not in any real competition.
