All the above ohotos are my car , it's fun to add stickers which add to the racing theme if you go that way . The last photo is the car with the windscreen on for the normal look if that's fair to say and go r the race look taken windscreen off and added stickers ( goggle are a must to protect your eyes from insects , stones and wind ) lots of fun !!!!!

Looks good. I'm glad to know that there are running 550's out there. Mine is taking forever to complete.

Nice car! Always liked the mid-engine design.

I`m still captivated by the 550 Spyder that was buried by the father/stepfather of a guy who was racing it, out of concern for the young man`s safety many years ago. I wish that Werner could somehow trace it and recover it, even if only to not having it go to waste completely. Wouldn`t that be awesome!

What is the quality of the Beck replicas like?

I see you around the hood sometimes - you are far too tall for that thing!
Does your exhaust scrape with that setup?

I read somewhere that that particular car was in fact not buried but has been restored and now lives in either Italy or Spain can't remember.

Do'nt assume anything- (While doing fault-finding).
