Price drop on this car to $2700.00. Lowest I will go. No spares. Come get it. Need my trailer for hunting season!
I was at the VORRA race this past weekend and ran across Rick Meers' old class 9 Chenowyth for sale. The owner raced it and it actually won a moto. Body's a bit rough but the car hasn't been sitting in a barn and is in running condition. I think he's asking $5k/obo. It's still got a bunch of original stickers on it.
Just found out this could have been one of Mecos cars in the mid 80sThis one has been flat black for a long time. Maybe longer than it was red from the looks of the paint. I bought it in April 2015 and it wasn't race-able at that point or probably even a year before. I don't think it's seen any action in 5 years or more.
That car was the old La Paz Party Mix car built in about 1977. The original car was very beautiful, but when finished, was already behind the technology curve as it had a laydown bus reduction box swinger in back and folks were moving to the bus IRS by then. The finish was fantastic and top notch with lots of chrome, polish, and some very intricate and different aluminum work. The car then became a 1600 car at some point with a taller cage put on it that ended up being racked over a couple inches. Lakeman is a drag chassis fabricator of some note in SoCal and the shop is still around. It was featured in Hot VWs in 1977 I believe.
