    We invite you to get behind the wheel with us, it's certain to be an interesting drive. The world of car collecting has gone absolutely crazy. Billions of dollars have poured into the hobby, hedging on the exclusivity and authenticity of very special cars. However whenever this kind of money is being spent on collectibles, there is an illegal cottage industry that injects counterfeits into the mix. Some so good that one cannot tell the difference--until the provenance, or origin is questioned by experts.

    While some are just plain fake, others claim to be the real deal because they share parts with an original. In many cases, race cars, that went though several incarnations of development during their careers, wind up completely different from where they began.

    Wrecks are another grey area. Parts can be salvaged, but can the parts to the original wreck be documented? One such car has been clouded by controversy. It has twice come to auction and has failed to sell--as provenance has both times been called into question. Its owner, who remains anonymous, claims this car is a restoration of chassis --a car experts say has no connection at all due to total destruction in a racing crash. The story really begins in at Daytona International Speedway.

    Augie Pabst , heir to the beer brewing fortune of the same name, climbs into the Tippo 61 Maserati to practice for the famed 24 Hour Endurance race. The car is prepared by Briggs Cunningham , owner of the American Cunningham Team which has become legend in sports car circles--and whose remaining cars have become highly collectible. The track is a combination of road course and high banking and for more than 50 years has provided an incredible challenge to world class drivers and manufacturers who enter the 24 Hour classic.

    As Pabst exits the road course portion and takes to the high speed banking--something goes terribly wrong. The beautiful Birdcage--garnering its nickname from the welded small diameter steel tubes that make up the frame--lurches right.

    A huge impact with the guard rails sends the car into a series of end-over-end flips. Augie survives, but suffers fractured ribs, cuts, spinal and internal injuries. But as for Chassis , there was nothing left as the car was literally balled up and burned on that section of Daytona banking. Any pieces that were salvageable--which were few--were distributed to existing Birdcage owners for spares.

    Fast forward to A group of some of the most talented car and engine builders supposedly find surviving parts and rebuild the ill-fated machine to its original glory.
