Heck its already got a cage, that makes it even easier!

I say patch it up to look good from a distance, pop it on a Jeep frame and watch the Porsche purists go insane.

I didn't think about the Jeep frame. I like the way you think, my friend.

While I don't know the guys from Misfit Toys Racing, I seriously think ya'll should enter, I mean using the Wartburg as your resume, and the fact you've worked on p(arts)orsches should make you a shoe-in, and since I'll be at $2011, that would be epic to see

Instead of the Jeep idea, how about the drivetrain from a Yugo... up front? :)

OFFER VOID WHERE AVAILABLE.

Is that a euphemism for "offer rescinded whenever possible"?

Its hard to imagine they're scraping it .... it really looks like a lot of good stuff in there .... even just cutting out the tubes and re-using them could be very profitable.

It isn't too hard to figure out. I just went to the website for the team and hit the "contact us" button.

Don't you guys know how to use the internet for anything other than GRM and porn?

By the way, I'm planning on visiting BGB Motorsports later this week. Their shop is just a few minutes from here.

I'd find some way to turn it into a bed.
