Not Mine, No Affiliation

Pros: complete, runs, drives already has a "livery"

Cons: not a convertible (that's why the owner's letting this GA peach go...)

Read the Atlanta clause, in the rules. Green black would look good, but I would rallyx the snot out of it as it sits.

Got a link? (there's not one here like there ought to be) I had missed that there was a change. I know that for the $2012 rules, it looked like rule #13 would prevent me - because of the gasoline costs - from driving up to GA to pick a $2K car.

Joey, Joey, Joey...

You don't drive to GA to pick up a Challenge car. You drive to GA to visit me, or the Hong Noors, and while you are here, you might as well pick up that car!

I am not sure such a clause exists.

A search of this site for the exact phrase "Atlanta clause", only shows posts where you reference it.

I am not sure that has been added to the rules.

Hmmm, I could have sworn it was discussed at last years banquet. Bit of a blur that weekend is.... paintball scenario that one of our sponsors wanted the WHOLE team there, and the challenge in the same weekend was a little nuts.

I drove an 81 Camaro with blue, red, yellow and green polka dots all over it, along with "racing stripes" consisting of yellow and blue footprints (from my actual sneakers) down the center.

I never skipped school.

My parents would have heard from everyone they knew if I had.

On the other hand, the prettiest girl in school told me my car was cool. We went on to have an awesome fling with lots of naughty bits.

Or, I weakly said "thanks" and thought about the rest,
