When it comes to Japanese cars racing in the US, the BRE 44/14 car might be the most important car in the world.
Wow. That is a strong statement. Care to qualify that one?
I agree that it is an outstanding restoration, Les does fantastic work with projects like this-- the hand lettering on the side of the car is the icing on the cake.
But your comment that this particular roadster is the most important US-based Japanese race car is comical. I want some of that Kool-Aid you are drinking!
The BRE cars had an outstanding legacy and Brock was a master at promotion, then and now. Bob Sharp had a much longer legacy racing Datsun and Nissan products, and in-fact gave Nissan their first National Championship in a roadster in 1967-- something that BRE was never able to accomplish with the roadsters. We all know about the success with the 510s and 240Z later...
There are lots of Japanese race cars that had amazing careers on US soil, and while Adam's car is a stunning restoration, and it great to see it being raced in anger again, it is just one of many...
