It’s Here: Our LeGrand Arrives in Florida

Update by Per Schroeder to the LeGrand Mk 18 project car
Oct 28, 2008

Pete looks at the logbook that he started 32 years ago.
A LeGrand is quite tiny, and at 800 pounds, it's also very light.
The front and rear bodywork flip to expose the aluminum monocoque chassis.

The LeGrand Mk18 arrived by truck last night. Per’s dad, Pete, was in town for the weekend and got to see the car roll off the trailer for the first time in 30 years.

The car is in remarkably good shape, having undergone a restoration back to near-original specs a few years ago. Our plan is to update the car to compete in SCCA’s Solo B Modified category. This will include differential, suspension and motorcycle engine work.

Our short-term goals are to get some fresher rubber on the wheels and compete at the Florida State Autocross Championship in November.
