This means I that before arriving we will have added two additional modes of transportation!
Sounds great.
I am already committed to bringing a motorcycle in the trunk of the Q45 so picking up another car sounds easy!

You get a roof rack to put that FSAE car on yet?

I say we leave the bra. Leather bras are classy right?

Andrew PM me your phone number so we can discuss.

Read between the lines here:
Andy has time, a trailer and is looking for adventure. Swinging into Charleston, WV from his York, PA home adds about 220 miles for him and 3.5 hours but it does mean that he can then avoid all of the Wash DC Corridor and the traffic it has to offer (which would be worth it for me.)

The best part is always the way home forgetting to go around and being bumper to bumper 0-70-0mph from Richmond till I get out of DC.

I poked around one at the junkyard. Its a decent looking suspension design. It looked like you could make one fun.

If you need a hand at the Challenge, I'm in. I worked on the Fiero last year, so I'm used to working in the parking lot at the hotel.

You put in more work than any of us. I'll be in charge of the late night dominos ordering.

Maybe tomorrow I'll actually install the seat in the Lexus.

I looked at the car this morning. It is well maintained, runs well and actually has decent tires. I have no idea where the hood scoops or bra came from. The best thing is it has a spring conversion, so no wheezing airbags.

Springs! Awesome.

My intel says that those rims shown are 16x7
bolt pattern: 5x108
center bore: 63.4

Volvo rims will fit too.

I will be picking up last year's Hankooks in Gainesville Thurs night. They are mounted to the BBS's which are the wrong pattern but they are 16" if we want to unmount them and get the Hankooks mounted to these Lincoln rims.

That sounds like a good back up plan. If I can get a 15 to fit over the brakes I have some Hoosiers to use. That and I need to find 15 inch 5 x 108 wheels.

I might have some Volvo 15s you can borrow. Only problem is when I googled a picture they said that they're 16s. I'll check when I get home.

You may need to dial in some negative camber on the front of the Lexus.
