My absolute favourite Formula 1 racecar of all time. I just wish I had a bigger, more detailed cutaway picture of it to post. Until then, this will have to do.
What are your favourite F1 cars?
The first rule of Toasters is, only talk about cars on Hooniverse. The second rule of Toasters is…oh who am I kidding. Pretty much anything painted like this.

Perhaps Ayrton Senna can help make this a bit more Toasters-ish.

That's awesome! Also, for some reason it's making me wonder what your KV would look like in JPS colors…
It would still look silly, I'm afraid.
It would take far more than that to jeopardize the understated elegance of the KV. Far more.

Er…is that a roll of toilet paper that I see on the right hand side of your fryer attachment?
I believe so. As I said, far more.

"No, it's purely for cooling, guys! …2J who?" Nice pick!
Since the P34, BT46, and JPS-liveried stuff in general are already up there (that was quick…), I'll throw this in:

BRM V16, if for nothing other than the sound. Fullsize cutaway at <a href="http://dayerses.com/data_images/posts/brm-v16/brm-v16-01.jpg.” target=”_blank”>http://dayerses.com/data_images/posts/brm-v16/brm-v16-01.jpg.
Here is an on board view of the P34, going around Monaco:

There was no F1 back then, just "Grand Prix": Bugatti type 35.

1906 Locomobile "Old 16" 7 inch by about 7 inch 4 cylinder. 60-90?HP ill have to look it up again. Top Speed in excess of 100 mph.
I would imagine that going 100 mph in that thing was quite exciting, what with leaf springs and teeny little scissors-type shocks, along with rather primitive seats and no restraints. Yee-haw!
I would also imagine that the upholstery got refreshed on a fairly regular basis as well.
Hole in the center of each seat. Deposits help keep
the differential lubed…..and drafters well back.
They are dampeners. Not shocks. There is a difference.
This is slower and older by 3 years but much cooler.
