Tommy's McLaren M6A

(click the image to go back)

This model came about as a result of two events in Tommy's life: He had just finished reading Mark Donahue's book, Unfair Advantage, in which he saw several intriguing photos of the car, and Bob (Uncle Bobby) Doebley's prodding him to build something new after the NNL Nationals for another contest just three weeks later. This Testors "Blue Angels Blue" racer not only won Tommy the Second Place trophy at the contest, it netted him a free lunch from Uncle Bobby!
