If you are talking about the Formula cars, these are Formula Fords and Formula C, Formula B. Many different makes. First car is a Titan, second is a Lotus and third is a Brabham. I use to owe a Brabham Formula B (powered by a lotus twincam), but unfortunately sold it due to lack of time and money. The things you do for your kids so they can race. Very Happy

Depends what you are looking for. If you are looking for general, type in formula ford, formula c, formula b, formula supervee. The popular vintage race organizations are HMSA, SVRA, VARA, CSRG

Here is a site that has vintage cars for sale http://www.race-cars.com/

The picture at the top tells you what it is. Those are Vintage cars and probably worth more today then when they raced. It is similiar to what our club promotes with Vintage Karts in March.

Josh,

I can't find any pix of my first car, but it was a 1970 Merlyn Mk17 FF1600 like the one pictured below.
