Hey Rory, looking good. Now the fun of final assembly begins. I`m hoping to get my parts back from powdercoating soon so I can start bolting stuff together.
I'll try scanning in the article when i get home this weekend. One was from Off Road, the other was Hot VW's, both from 1978. As for where the car has been hiding, it actually was probably down the street from where you live in Eugene. Going through some old pic's and articles, I was under the impression that Challenger started life as a short course car, then was cut up and turned into a desert racer.....here's why:
It's funny that you mention Eugene for the hiding place. When I first got into this sort of thing, I stopped by that shop for some Q&A with the guy that worked there. If I recall, I think his name was Gary? Anyways, while talking to him I'm looking around in the rafters and there stacks upon stacks of coilovers sitting with 1/4" of dust on them. There was also a couple of chassis up there as well, maybe it was one of them? The shop closed down awhile back, but the surrounding businesses are still there, and everyone knew him & the MT history. If you'd like, I can ask some Q's......
Just having some fun...plus there are A LOT of outtakes so I want to get em all in.Showing the out takes allready? Thought those were to be shown in the end.
Going to put a DVD set together of the cars that have been done? Off set the cost of the builds.
Very nicely done, looking forward to see more.
