Hi Bob, welcome to the list!

Your background reminded me of something; I want to go racing really,
really bad.  Maybe this year my 66 B will finally be done and I can
take it out for some H Stock AutoX.

I would love a dedicated race car though (not that I have the room
but when did common sense ever enter into this?).  I've been waffling
between several different marques as a platform, my most recent kick
was to start with a ratty 73-74 Porsche 914 2.0 but I can't seem to
get the idea of having a lil racing Spridget out of my head...

Are there any good websites and/or books on converting a Midget to
racing specs?  What are the common mods?  How competitive could you
expect to be?  I was reading the recent SCCA Nationals results in
GRM and noticed there were one or two Midgets.  I think one of them
had a rotary engine swap or some other FrankenMod though :)

I'm sure there are some back issues of GRM that have some info,
but their back issues stock is pretty limited.

(GRM = Grassroots Motorsport Magazine)

Wow.... I'd like to see your garage.
