Dick Bear has always wanted to own a replica of Bruce McLaren’s CanAm Series race car. Unable to afford the real thing, he did what any crafty car guy would do, and built his own.
Starting from a drawing and a dream, the McBearen McLaren took shape over 24 to 26 months, and countless late nights. Powered by a 2.0 liter Honda Vtech Si engine, and sitting on a custom chassis (among the myriad of other custom parts and pieces), this budget beater is one man’s wish turned into reality.
Check out the link for full details of the build, as Dick was amazingly thorough through every part of the process.
