Not mine. It's a good thing I don't have the extra space right now. I'm in the middle of a few Subaru projects.

I think that there should be a racing class that is open to engine displacement, car weight, any turbo/superchargers allowed. Just the normal safety equipment and you have to run those space saving spare tires on the driven wheels are the only rules.

too much $ for a car with a blown engine and a roached interior and missing a bunch of stuff.

We've got a huge pile of those at FM from the salvage cars. Someday, at our Summer Camp, we're going to have a staff challenge along those lines. I'm thinking you should be allowed to run two space savers and two ordinary tires. But where?

I could see 2 of those spares as a whole lot of fun on the rear of FWD car. Put them up to about 60-65psi and have handfuls of lift oversteer.

but you have to agree it is totally rust free, which is never seen in Chicago or Detroit.

I just called and talked to the owner. He seems like a really nice guy.

He really thinks a spec Miata guy would be best as they will gut the interior and rip out the engine. He mentioned that I might be dollars ahead by buying a $3,000 Miata. (if I had $3,000)

And he backed up the rust-free-ness on the car.

I talked to Greg, it is on the west side of Michigan - Just south of St. Joe/Benton Harbor and North of Michigan City, Indiana.........
