Anorak alert- 956/962

This is from the 962 wiki, but it looks to me as if it must be 956- the 962 has 2 turbos, so 2 exhausts, right? And not in the venturi tunnel, either?

I'm gonna say 956...

I wait to be shot down.

BANG.

That looks like an IMSA 962, which had one turbo. The 956 had twin turbos with exhausts on either side of the chassis.

Chassis 962-119 was built for the IMSA BFG team in 1986. There's a website that details all 956/962 chassis. Can't remember its name

The site is called 962.com ..... thats a typical 962 diffuser as used in IMSA . Not specific to any particular chassis .

Sorry , I ment to say that it was a typical 962 IMSA exhaust . The 956 and 962C both had twin turbo's and they exited just in front of the rear wheel arch .

Actually, it is my picture. I took it at the 24 Hours of Daytona, they had several historics there. It is chassis #119, which was the BFGoodrich car, but the car was repainted in Rothmans colors and used as a Porsche show car.

I took the shot specifically because Wikipedia has no free photos of the 956 or 962's diffuser except for one I took of Dyson's DR1 (Richard Lloyd GTi #202), but that one wasn't very clear.

aaaah! My bad. I mixed 962 and 962C. Amateur. I'll put away the anorak, for I am no longer worthy.

In the background of that picture I see what appears to be one of the old Jack Roush Cougars!! Is it and do you have any pictures of it?

Actually it's the Whistler Radar Roush Mustang that Robby Gordon, Martin Martin, and Wally Dallenbach Jr. drove.

Also the John Jones/Dallenbach Motorcraft Mustang and the Pruett/Halsmer/Miller Merkur XR4Ti.

Just take a look around the gallery, I took pictures of all the classics there.
