So the Fall guy thread got me looking at those Old TV shows, and then specifically the "Coyote" hero car in Hardcastle & McCormack.

So, the Coyote hero car was based on a Manta GT, which itself is a Kit-Car designed to look like the old Can-Am cars.

The Coyote


The Manta GT it was based on:



And what the Manta was made to imitate. The REAL thing. The 8.8L 900hp naturally aspirated McLaren M8 Can-Am car.




Just listen to this thing fire up @ 35 seconds.


And on track:

As a kid, I liked that dumb TV show just for the car.

If you guys ever get the opportunity, head up to Road America for the Brian Redman weekend. There's a Can-Am group, and it's the greatest thing ever. Ferrari's, McLaren's, UOP's. Ridiculous big blocks galore roaring around the course. There's almost nothing better.

HIGHLY recommended. I've got tons of pictures from previous years.

LoL @ the $ sign at 9K on the tach. Yeah, I'd guess at 9k you might have to spend some money when you scatter the bottom end.
