Yes the new Answer is the Q45. First the trip to get her. https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/adventures/i-wanna-be-like-john-when-i-grow-up-trip/116620/page1/ Here's how she sat at Andy's Next I'd suggest that you never get caught cheating. Every body panel is keyed. Rear window also. The wood is my loading ramp. Plans are to add lightness. We were playing with it yesterday and Asa kept saying oh this (unneeded gadget) is cool and I'd say yea it'll drop X pounds when we remove it. So budget wise this one is interesting. Obviously I can only recover $50 so that'll be easy enough. I want to do a real world budget along with our Challenge budget just to see what they end up at.

Is this an April Fools post?

Damn, she did a number on that thing. Is that paint peeling from brake fluid?

Thanks guys. Yea those wheels have to go. I already picked up a set of 18 inch Mustang wheels before even getting the car. That peeling is vinyl wrap that was used to seal the rear window and sunroof. No April fools but I was more amazed that no one else jumped on it first after all the times Andy threw it out on the board.

At this point I told myself that I needed to get with Andy about it but forgot about it until this post on February 15th.

Umm, nope. Clue me in.

He might know a guy, that just may have one in his basement that he doesn't need or really want at this point.

That's when I said oh E36 M3 and a few text and a PayPal payment later I became the proud owner.

Andrew already offered to split the $500 set. I would have already snagged them but I am going with 295/40/17's.

Have I mentioned that this year has all the makings for one of the best Challenges ever!

I want to bring a minivan.
I want to bring back the Q45 for an all Q45 class
I want to have a hand in parking lot building of the TrailerParkCet
I want to get a chance to drive two other Q45s

I've bought nothing yet.
What to do?

Stampie was paying better attention than me. I never saw the posts, and contacted Andy to buy it 10 minutes after Stampie did.

Good luck with it! Still willing to take it off your hands if you change your mind.

Interesting. That Kingsland one missed my searches this morning. The others are way too big for me I think.

Build a minivan and use it to tow your Q45 from last year. Or there are rumors that a BFT (big berkeleying trailer) is coming to your neck of the woods soon. You're welcome to drive our Q45 anytime.

Thanks but I don't think you'd want what's left after I get done with it.

Almost forgot. I had a weird dream last night. There was some secret Q45 owners club that had great deals on parts but you had to pass their test to join. The test was to place a 2 inch thick 2 foot long piece of marble on edge under the car perfectly level then you had to position the Q45 perfectly square with the marble. Needless to say that they didn't accept my redneck ass

Don't want to buy just an engine.

I want to buy an engine in a running car so I can test it, that includes mounts, ECU, harness, manifolds, intake piping, etc. PLUS enough parts to sell off to zero out the engine.
