    Clint Eastwood's 240Z?!?!

    First off, I know nothing about this car other than what's in the following link, but damn it's a badass looking Zed.



    Here's the post http://thethrottle.thechive.com/2010...s-z-16-photos/

    It appears to be a celebrity race car. Why can't celeb support races have proper sports cars like this, the last celebrity race I saw here in Australia had Lexus CT200h's :roll:

    Anyone know anything else?

    Okay, I can see why there are Clint Eastwood movie posters in there, but why Josh Brolin and Barbra Streisand?

    I'd love to know what celebrity race this was from. I like what's painted over the passenger door: Crew chief: Gene Hackman. Hopefully the other cars that were in the race have all been saved, too.

    That car is now owned by Bob Clucas and is raced several times a year. Its a beautiful car.










    Bob is down in Southern California.

    Awesome!!!!! Thanks for that.
    Any idea how close it is in those photos to how it would have raced originally?

    It looks like a pretty seriously set up bit of kit :mrgreen:

    Its a really cool car. I don't know that Clint Eastwood ever owned the car however. I guess I could email Bob himself and the full story from him (I'll have to find his email, I have it here someplace.) I don't have any more pics of the car posted online, but I do have a few more on the computer.

    I'm pretty sure the car is close to "As Raced" on the IMSA Circuit at some point. Its had several different paint jobs.
