Re: Can Am Cars


even the 917 couldn't match the dominance of the mclaren m6 and m8 during the late 60's and early 70's (the 'bruce and denny show').  when you consider the amount of money that porsche had to spent on the 917 to defeat the mclarens which bruce mclaren designed and denny hulme and bruce raced to such good effect, the mclarens didn't do too bad for a shoe-string budget and home-grown design.

mind you, i'm a kiwi and so have to defend mclaren's honour!

recommend the recent publication 'can-am' btw,

'95 rs2
'90 ur-q
