Ta Da!

The Muffin Man has won the SlotForum - Revell/Monogram - GetSlotted Competition.

Two Revell/Monogram Corvettes, courtesy of GetSlotted, will be on their way to him today!

Question: Why did Greenwood and the "Spirit of Le Mans" car go to Le Mans in 1976?

Answer: In 1976 due to the fuel crisis, not many cars were signed-up for the Le Mans race. This adversely affected the projected attendance so one of the organizers called John Greenwood to solicit his entry into the race. The Greenwood cars were always a bit hit and this made John Greenwood about the only car owner ever to be paid to bring his car to Le Mans.

Congratulations to The Muffin Man.


Thank you to GetSlotted for supporting SlotForum and sponsoring the competition.

Well done Muffin!!
The competition came a bit too late for me, having already bought one of the 'Vettes. Oh, and I didn;t know the answer either!!

So my guess of, "The French just wanted to have a laugh watching dragsters do corners" wasn't right?

Ho, hum.
