    Sad news. The BRE 46 got caught up in an accident at the HSR race in Daytona. Fortunately, John Morton walked away.

    I haven't seen any photos from the aftermath, but I did hear the car ended up on its roof. Randy said the car is very messed up.

    It's more of a rebirth than a replica. Randy worked extensively with the BRE team members and photos to capture every detail possible. He bought all of the existing parts still in existence from Dan Parkinson and installed them in the car (except for the engine and transmission which remain on display).

    While the original body was wrecked in the late 70s, John Morton thought enough of Randy's efforts to give Randy the original car's VIN plate.

    Steve,

    I believe I have a roof panel if Randy needs it
