    rare to see those sealed beam headlights, and not the glass lense units, on a R5T?

    We should start a seperate thread just for that Lancia!! There is one here in Houston and I am dying to see it. I wonder how hard it would be to import one?

    Its an EVO II

    It is those are the pics that last owner took when he was selling them (he is the GM of the ferrari dealer locally)


    In a few more years itll be easier to bring them in when the 20/25 year applies.....right now there are a bunch of hoops you have to jump threw.

    perhaps a period "rally car" thread? there are several WRC models that were/are great, though may not fill a thread on thier own?
    owners/collectors of rally cars could there chime in too

    That would also work and is probably a better idea. Loving the latest R5 pics!
