We are looking to at least be drivable on one engine by Spring.

The wiring system might be spaghetti with Twisted wires but we hope to be able to run it with at least one drivetrain by may..... we can duct tape in a junkyard windshield

Make sure you read the rule book. That car will certainly be in the unlimited class and will be running cars that run in the high 5's

@BrianG and I are seriously considering it. Trans problems seem to have been rectified (knocks on wood) on the Grand Prix. But we have a problem passing tech with the coilovers in the back.

Will be taking the day off to go to GLD for sure. Perhaps Byron as well but that drive sucks.
