Ah, the start of racing season in America. Here’s to a wonderful 2018! Took this picture of the 2009 24 Hours of Daytona winning Brumos Porsche by Greenlight while watching earlier today.
FERRARI FRIDAY! This blue 365 GTB/4 Daytona is from the 2011 HW Garage series.
Daytona, 1966: The Ford/Ferrari wars are just hitting their stride, the Ford GT40 MkII vs the Ferrari 250LM & 365P. The eyes of the world are on this clash of titans. For the first time, Daytona’s high banks and infield road course would see 24 hours of racing, the duration having been increased to that of Le Mans…
Ok so it wasn’t exactly a Super Target but the title sounded better so I took the liberty. I stopped by Target on my way home from work and was flipping through the pegs, seeing the usual peg warmers, when I found the Super Chromes Mig Rig rTH (I already had a couple so I left it behind).

The first racing version of the 365GTB/4 was prepared in 1969: an aluminium bodied car was built and entered in the Le Mans 24-hour race that year (the car crashed in practice). Ferrari did not produce an official competition car until late in 1970.
Complying to the convertible market, Ferrari had Pininfarina design the Daytona Spider and limited production to just 122 cars. At the time, the Daytona was known as the top dog, holding a speed record of 180mph, and being described as the ‘the best sports car in the world’ by Road & Track.
The Ferrari 365 GTB/4, better known by the unofficial name Ferrari Daytona, is a grand tourer automobile produced from 1968 to 1973. It was first introduced to the public at the Paris Auto Salon in 1968 and replaced the 275 GTB/4. The Daytona was replaced by the mid-engined 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer in 1973.
My favorite from the Cool Classics line. I never managed to find the Ford GT LM anywhere.
I promised myself I wouldn't overspend, and it was hard to keep. I found a HW Boulevard Fiero, which I then put down for an M2 Super Bee, which I then painfully put down in favor of my favorite race car ever, a Shelby Daytona.
