Default Decals from C&R Racing: Porsche 908/3 #40

C&R059: Another 1970 Targa Florio Porsche 908/3. Another John Wyer-Gulf entry. Another decal for the Aurora Porsche 510 (grind off the rear fins, fill in the hood's radiator openings) and the SlotCarInnovations Porsche 908/3 (but you can make only one of these with this sheet).

If you read the entry for car #36, I mentioned that the sheet said it came in 5th but it probably came in 4th. (Wikipedia's entry for Waldegaard says 4th; Wikipedia's entry for the 1970 Targa Florio says 5th.) Well, this sheet says the #40 came in 4th, but other sources, probably more accurate than my sources, says it came in 2nd. When I finally get relocated, and have access to my library, I'm hoping that I'm more accurate.

Anyway, and incontrovertibly, this car was driven by Leo Kinnunen and Pedro Rodriguez.

Extra #40s included for your enjoyment.

I'm retired now, so please buy lots...

According to Targa Florio - 20th Century Epic:
1st - #12
2nd - #40
3rd - #6
4th - #18
5th - #36

I'm pretty sure I have that book...somewhere. Thanks for the "real" information.
