TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as
the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been
flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch
the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter
of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours
- almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans
winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö
Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a
special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II
documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with
the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have
retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a
dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which
the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13
seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running
of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi
Sport and breath-taking pictures.

includes footage of the C6 in testing at the Nurburgring, Autobahn and the

car spy photographer Jim Dunn. All credit goes to Discovery Channel. I have
just taken the liberty to get this from an old video tape and upload it.
1960 Corvette Covertible Test Drive
Test drive of a nice 1960 Corvette Convertible.
Black exterior with Silver coves, Black interior, White convertible top.
230hp 283ci engine, 4 speed manual transmission. This is a reasonably
priced, head-turning car that will gather a crowd anywhere it goes for
years to come! This 1960 Corvette appears to be either a very original car,
or an older restoration. Paint is still very nice with a good shine,
showing few blemishes, but still showing a few signs of age. Chrome looks
to be all original and shows some patina; convertible top is a few years
old, but still in very good condition with a clear window. Exterior chrome
door handles look to be original as well. Door weatherstripping is a few
years old, but still very soft with no cracking. This 1960 Corvette
features a set of original hubcaps that are in very nice condition with no
dings and a good shine. Tires are Dunlop Gold wide whitewalls with tread
showing, however we recommend replacing these tires immediately as they
have dry-rotted sidewalls, and are therefore not safe to drive on. One
single T3 headlamp remains; the others are halogen units. Taillights are in
good condition with no cracks or breaks. The interior of this car is very
much if not ALL original, including the seat covers, gauges, steering
wheel, door panels, and carpet. All of these components show some wear from
age, but nonetheless there are no tears in the seat covers, dash, or door
panels. A vintage White-Westinghouse cassette deck has been installed in
the factory location with no cuts, and a Hurst shifter has been installed
as well. Engine casting number shows 1102043; casting date corresponds to
July 5, 1959. We believe this to be a Numbers Matching car, although being
a 1960 model, this car was built before VIN numbers were cast in the engine
block, and therefore we cannot say for certain. This 1960 Corvette features
its CORRECT original generator!! An Edelbrock carburetor has been added; Exhaust and intake manifold casting
numbers are illegible. This car features a solid frame, and would be
perfect for someone that wants to be able to drive a classic Corvette
without a huge investment or having to worry about driving it to the
grocery store. Factory features include AM radio, powerglide automatic
transmission (both removed/replaced).
