I'm so undecided on color it isn't even funny any more. I have been thinking Signal Yellow. That would be an interesting color for wide-body.

This will be a very mild 4 cylinder street car on sticky tires. Wait until you see what Ed is doing with the Pumpkin. That will be the car to watch in 2017

Yep, it should be a simple but fun car to putt around the course. Nothing like the Pumpkin but still fun.

I'm not building an engine for this thing. I purchased the engine it was raced with back in the day. It may be a bit tired but we'll see how it goes. It is an early 2 liter block with some old school upgrades. Not sure exactly what they have done since I haven't opened it up. I wanted the same engine it raced with. I thought it would be cool.
