All it needs is some angle iron and some zipties. I mean, I'd probably drive it.

How do those look with the body off?  Similar design to the NA?

It's people having fun. Makes as much sense as spending thousands of dollars to be fractionally faster around a bunch of cones in a parking lot.

In this case, we were pulling out the rollerskate to build a V8. The big tires were right there, so I said "wouldn't it be funny if we..."

And so we did. It's like a litmus test of how seriously you take yourself.

I was thinking of how to respond, myself. That's it. Nailed it in four words.
