Silly me, they were X5's, and X3's. you don't need to explain to me what a racecar is.
My original point was that the " model" of car that's dressed over a racecar chassis had nothing to do with its credibility, just because Hummers are not currently for sale new doesn't make Robby's effort any less credible.
Race teams take their sponsorship from whoever they can get it. If Mitsuoka wanted to sponsor him his racecar would look like an Orichi with a lift kit and big wheels.
