    1965 Ginetta G4 Vintage Race Car

    Not at all a BMW, but I thought you all might enjoy seeing this!

    After a number of years of development and enjoyment, Dad is putting his 1965 Ginetta G4 up for sale. The car has been driven successfully with VRG and other groups at VIR, Summit Point, PIRC, Lime Rock, and elsewhere. Aside from adding water, it's been prepped for use at its next event. I've included some photos and details about the car below, but if you'd like more info please visit http://www.michaelsvintageracing.com...inetta-g4-0189 or give us a call at (845)226-4979.

    Here's a video showing the car's capability. Starting from last place, it sliced through a field of 911s, 2002s, Datsun 510s, and Mustangs to take the overall lead. It was turning 1:15s at the Lightning circuit along the way.

    And this was before a couple effective suspension improvements were performed!
