Selling my Panoz race car.  This car is a blast at the track.  Great for track days or racing.  Former Panoz Racing Series Spec Race car.  Apparently the only GTWC in its original form, specs, color and shape.  Also now vintage eligible with some race groups, (HSR, SVRA), and also run with NASA, PBOC, etc.  Original gel coat and paint.  Original WC series decals.  NOT a GTRA Panoz Racing School Car.  This type has the reinforced frame for slick use and racing purposes.  Great condition.  Impeccable, original 4.6 Cobra engine.  Dynoed at 330 engine Hp.  These engines are a workhorse.  Designed for high performance, reliability and low maintenance.  Tremec 5 speed transmission.  Dry track: 18"x9” BBS alloy wheels with Toyo Proxes RR LL, 275-35R18.  Wet track: American Racing TorqThrust wheels, front -17x9", rear, 18x10".  Michelin Super Sport, front, 245/40ZR-17, rear, 285/35ZR18.  Brembo brake calipers, 6 pistons front, 4 pistons rear.  Carbotech pads.  Performance friction floating brake rotors.  Steel braided lines.  Wilwood adjustable brake bias brake master cylinders.  Very tight, precise suspension all over.  Full float Ford 9" rear axle with Watts linkage.  Penske racing shocks. Autometer tachometer, water temp and oil pressure gauges.  32 Gallon fuel cell.  Optima Red Top battery.  Sparco PRO 2000 race seat.  5-point Crow harness.  Pi data logger.  Many books, manuals, records, receipts and log books.  Includes generous lot of spares (2 full 27-gal totes), an extra set of new Carbotech brake pads and two extra BBS 18”x9” wheels.  Excellent track day car. Designed and built to be fast, reliable, safe, and cheap to run.  Runs on pump gas.  Easy to maintain and repair. Very little maintenance required.  All parts are still available and affordable.  Very special vehicle.  Soon, a collector’s item.  Autographed by Brian Redman in 2008.  Currently in Seattle, WA.
