Further Description/Back Story Just wrapped up this F103L restoration. I decided to do a Mario Andretti tribute car. This is his “last ride” from Leguna Seca in 1994. As such, I used Tamiya’s Lola T94/00 body and, with the help of MCI Racing, updated the Kmart/Texaco livery by swapping out some of the sponsors from 1993. Panel lines were drawn with a Parma detailing pen. Aftermarket mirrors and custom-made onboard camera pods and antennas put the finishing touches on it.
