In truth, I had been *talking* about this project for quite some number of years, and finally the car has been completed to the point of where it has been competing for a few years on the autocross scene. It is still not complete, though here it is June, 1999, and we may finally this month get the body and paint work done on the bonnet. We shal see.
5 May 1996: My codriver Pugs Pivirotto and I get the suspension, brakes and all four wheels on the frame. The frame was sandblasted and painted in October of 1993. We have NOT been working too quickly on this project. At the moment, it looks like:
30-aug-96: Getting closer. The body is now securely bolted to the frame, the roll bar is almost ready to go in. The current target is to have the thing driveable for the ucoming Intermountain Vintage Racing hillclimb coming up on Sept. 21/22
1995's incarnation of the various Trick Racing, uh, Stuff was a red 1974 Spit (yes, the one pictured at the top level of my pages) known as Junior.
7 April 1997: Wow, almost a year later than the last picture. THIS year we WILL get the car done. Here's what it looks like now.
September, 1997 - The car makes it to the SCCA Solo II Nationals, in Topeka, Kansas. Still two toned, the interior is not finished, but it makes it there. I turn in a fairly respectable mid pack performance, just 1.4 seconds out of the trophies. Drat. I'll be back.
