In the game of one-upmanship that is car collecting, what better way to show up the Joneses than taking your very own race car—like this 1987 March PC18 Indy car—around the local track on the weekend? Even if you don’t live near a track suitable for an Indy car, there’s still the possibility of inciting neighbor envy by just leaving your garage door open and pulling it out for a wash and wax session.
