I have some bad news ... (car related, important things are fine)

So, I’ve been waiting to tell you all this, because I wanted to do a proper write-up. Work had been crazy, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing up anytime soon, so I’m just going to come out with it already.

She’s dead Jim.

About halfway through the day of the last rallycross of the year this Sunday, the motor starting giving up the ghost. It’s running on 2-cylinders, knocking, and pushing oil back out the filler cap. It’s so down on power, the guy running the start line had to push me once to get it rolling. The suspension mounts are too rusty for it to be worth fixing.

Not that I’m complaining. My total outlay, parts and all, for two years of rallycross and a Gambler 500, was less than $500. You cannot beat the amount of fun I had for the money here.


But I do has a sad. I miss it already, and it’s still in my driveway.

Thanks again to XJDano for basically giving me this car.  It has been one hell of a ride!
