The car is great on long trips. We did 4000 mile to the event then did an autocross and did something to the engine, so its still back there. I had to hitch a ride back to Oregon with someone. Car will be transported here. Then a fresh engine put into it.

Plans...I bought a 2 liter crank. So the engine build starts....

That sucks about the engine. Didn't you have to rebuild it when you got the car?

I, for one, would be interested in just a few more details!

Way back in 2014, Woody wrote in this thread, "...If you think these look unusual now, they looked like kit cars from outer space back then..."

I had a flashback to the movie Vacation and the car salesman, "You think you hate it now, just wait until you drive it..." What a great line.

What are the details of the new engine? More power? Upgrades?

Maybe this was already covered, sorry for a duplicate question if it was: What are those wheels?
