There are a lot of 959 wanna be's out there, and a lot of body kits 
available. Im not sure I would know the difference between the real mccoy 
and a kit. Even so, sweet looking car.
I actually got to drive it at Villeneuve (sp?) stadium in Montreal. Had a 
closed track day for all the teams showing off their new stuff. They only 
had one there, and there were a lot of people drooling over it. Including 
the press. I have never seen one in the states at all, but I did see one 
for sale in Robb Report or something like that. Im not sure what it is 
about them that wont pass federalization.
We really couldnt go crazy in it, and we had to have someone in the car 
with us, but even 150 mph seemed like 30 on the track. Incredibly stable. 
*sigh* Maybe in my next life.
