    Barn Finds, wherabouts, or i think i knows

    Todd, thanks for the mention. And food for thought, I would be open to any reasonable offer for my Funco SSII. A lot of people don't really understand what it takes to turn even a complete running old race car into a car capable of racing on todays courses. I do all of my own work except motors...

    Interest in Possible SCORE Baja 1000 Vinatge Event

    My 2 cents,, I have spoken to Christine about this and I also spoke to Roger Norman at the Lucas Offroad Expo. Something Major to think about... I was told that the Baja 500 and 1000 have a finishing rate of around 30 -35 % with modern race cars. I am not saying that our cars can not...
