jcandfc commented on the Military wallpaper Spitfire Supermarine.
I think this is a Seafire, the Spitfire's cousin. Can be corrected though.

jcandfc commented on the Jaguar wallpaper 1966 Jaguar XJ13 Prototype.
In doing some research on this I found quite a few different pictures of this car. A few were of the original, but nearly all were of replicas, as this story explains ...In 1966 Jaguar produced just one example of the iconic and beautiful XJ13. It was an advanced prototype built to bring Jaguar back to the forefront of international sports car racing, specifically Le Mans. Unfortunately, the original car was crashed before ever being raced, while filming a commercial for the debut of the V12 XKE. The original car resides at the Jaguar Museum in Coventry, England.Numerous companies have tried to produce a replica of the car, but none have come close. The exception is Tempero, a New Zealand based company. WIth the help of the Jaguar factory, they created just six examples. They based their design on the factory's original drawing. This is an extraordinary recreation in aluminum as per the original car. The dimensions and weight are the same as the original car. The car features the same gauges as the original, and the windshield was even cast from the original factory mold.It is powered by a V-12 fuel injected single overhead cam Jaguar engine that closely resembles the original. It makes approximately 380 HP and is mated to a 5-Speed ZF transaxle as per the original car. The car has phenomenal road handling capabilities and outstanding brakes. It is very nimble, responsive and a joy to drive. The motor makes all the right sounds, becoming a symphony at close to redline. There are only six in the world like it.motorclassiccorp dot com:66-jaguar-xj13-prototype dot html(Replace the colon ":" with "/" Hey, NOT THE "" MARKS. You know better than that!)

The Jaguar XJ13 was a prototype racing car developed by Jaguar to challenge at Le Mans in the mid-1960s.It never raced, and only one was ever produced. The car has not been officially valued, but a £7 million bid for it was declined by the owners in 1996Andrew Frankel (1st October 2006) from "The finest Jaguar that never was" in The Sunday Times.

jcandfc commented on the Buick wallpaper Buick Shafer 8 Of Coker Tire Company 1937.
from Corky Coker in SeriousWheels dot com ....Phil Shafer built Indy cars from 1931 until about 1939 (about the time the cars went completely to single seat). This car is equipped with Rigling and Henning (of Indianapolis) special built chassis powered by a 284 cid Straight 8 Buick engine from a Buick series 60. Shafer had so much confidence in his Shafer 8 that he shipped one of his cars to Europe to drive in the German Gran Prix and finished 13th in 1931.As was raced at Indy, my Shafer 8 has an original Buick 3 speed transmission. Seven of Shafer’s Buick powered racers qualified for the famed Memorial Day Classic from 1931 until 1936. “Stubby” Stubblefield’s 5th place finish in 1933 was Shafer’s high point. Al Miller started in the third row in a Shafer 8 in 1934 and finished 6th. Shafer himself made the 1931, 1932, and 1934 INDY races, finishing 11th, 12th, and 15th places respectively. Cliff Bergere, who went on to become an Indy immortal, brought a Victor Gasket Shafer 8 home to 13th place in the1935 Indianapolis 500. He ran with the front of the pack until at 196 laps, he ran out of gas.I have rallied this Shafer 8 across the USA with the Great Race seven times (five times with my son, and twice with my wife).

These had a 320 cu in (5.2 L) Fireball I8 Straight-8 engine with cast-in-palce bearings that had to be machined afterward. A very heavy car that lacked performance.
