Brad Barber's Old Track Car on E-Bay

Found this while browsing this afternoon.
In case anyone is shopping for a track day car this may be a real deal.
I'm sure that Brad had 40 to 50K in this when he sold it.

It's a blast from the distant past .......

I just emailed the owner. He said he purchased it from Peter Ferrell in 1994. Still looks like a nice track car even thought it's not Brad's old one. I know Fritz had Brad's car up until a few years ago. Not sure who he sold it to... but it's still out there somewhere.

If this is not the same car then it is a "spoof" based on Brad's car's very unique configuration....
Note the "One Off" Valskis Dual Master Cylinders. This setup was only done on one car.
The "Techno Magnesio 18" x 10" Wheels" were also pretty specific to this car.

I agree and I too thought it was Brad's old car so I emailed the owner because this car, depending on the reserve, appears to be a pretty good deal. This is what the owner sent me back:

"I retired from running on the track when the motor went south in 2005. That is why the car has a brand new motor and turbo in it. I just made up my mind to sell it recently. No, I did not buy the car from Fritz, I have owned it out right since 1994. I bought it from Peter Farrell."

Either way, it'll make a good track car for someone.

This isn't Brad's car (which was actually Jim Obriens car repainted because Brads silver one was stollen). Fritz bought Brads yellow one, and parted it when the motor blew, and sold me the technomagnesio wheels, which I still have (there were about four sets made on a GB)... there were also a few of the dual masters done by Valskis.

There were a couple other "killer bee" cars from BITD. Judging by the user name, I'd say that's Jonathan Eppley. THAT'S a blast from the past.

Amen brotha. Your batting 1000 on all your facts as usual.

Count me in with the Valskis Technomag and dual master cylinder "Rotary Illuminati" !!

ptrhahn is correct. Owner is Jonathan Eppley. He is asking $17,500 for the car if anyone is interested.
