Who likes beater challenges? I do! Just completed my second Great Beater Challenge. General idea is as follows: buy a cheap vehicle ($700 or less all in including repairs), come up with a team theme, drive it on a road trip while completing a scavenger hunt, and have fun. Last year we used a carb'd K-car that was not really highway cable. This year a boring Civic with cheesy custom touches.
