Yes, there is a picture of a Mayflower with 44 on it - taken at Road Atlanta
during a race weekend I think. 1970s, sometime. No idea whose car it was. I
I never drove my Mayflower (never got it started) but I did drive one that was
for sale in Connecticut and I got it up to around 40 mph at which point it felt
so unstable that I slowed down. Hate to try it at top speed. For an autocross it
would need those outriggers that Consumer Reports uses to keep Suzukis from
35 year old Michelin X may be interesting but they are incorrect for the car.
Rules, rules, rules!!!
