Re: Pony up.

No, I'm talking about the cars that Carrol Shelby &Co. hand-built from the ground up to fix the flaws in the Lola design. (There are reasons that Lola only tried to race three of those cars, you know ... ).

If you're ever at a Concours d'Elegance where both are displayed, compare and contrast the two. There is really nothing the same about them at all. (I had the chance to do this at Pebble in 2016 ... I got to drive a '67 MkIV "Gurney bump" car at Seca the following day. Once in a lifetime, still gives me goosebumps thinking about it.)
