Tribute; an act, statement, or gift that is intended to show gratitude, respect, or admiration.
The tribute car pictured below is a labor of love for the car owner and possibly more so for the project manager. The project is being managed in Southern California by Bill Follmer, nephew to George Follmer who was a Porsche factory driver in the Can Am era. This helps explain why the level of detail is so precise but it's not the only reason. Bill is passionate about the project not only because it will carry his family name but also he genuinely wants to do period correct work to his own high standard for quality. Fans of the Can Am or early I.R.O.C. may recognize that the George's I.R.O.C RSR was Mexico Blue same as this special tribute car. Keep an eye out for more on this car as a bigger piece on the project will be made down the road.
