Patrik, ?(year) Karmann Ghia, not sure of year

Mark, '70 Superbee, maybe a '55 Gullwing

and Brandon a ?(year) Hemi Cuda'

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Nick

Hello Gumball Rallyers, just in case you didn't know I have taken over moderating the Cannonball Run CBP from Jantrix and I was planning on moving it from SA over here to MCM for 2012. I didn't realize that Nick had started the Gumball and he didn't know I was moving the Cannonball here but I PM'ed him yesterday and I think we agreed that there is room for both here on the forum. I will be posting information on the 2012 Cannonball Run after the 1st of the year, it will be a little stricter in the year and equiptment requirements so that will keep things different. Anyone involved in the Gumball is more than welcome to also join the Cannonball, I'm considering an entry in the Gumball myself (kinda thinking Chevy Monza...but still unsure of that). Stay tuned for Cannonball info and good luck to all the Gumball entrys.

I've already started sourcing parts for the yellow Camaro from the original movie.....Nick, you have a PM from me.

I have always found it ironic that Brock Yates, who was involved in the original race, wrote the screenplay for 'Cannonball Run.' The two stories of the race couldn't have been more different. The Ferrari Daytona that he won the real race with was at our local auto museum a few years ago, as was his Challenger. He lives in the finger lakes region of NY, in a small town called Wyoming, and had a restaurant there called the 'Cannonball Run Pub.'

I might have to build one for each of these then. The Camaro that I was thinking of (my own take on the car from the movie) for the Gumball CBP, and the mid-engine V-8 Corvair for the Cannonball CBP.

Had to order a new karmann giha from Lucky model since the one i got is not near the state of rebuild nor fresh neither barely started. So i think that i can start the build in like a week or so. Depending on when i got the karmann.

Made a test run whit the one Karmann bottom plate i got, and boy it will be a hudge task to get the Porsche Carrera engine to fit, but it is possible to shoehorn it in. So i only say to all ye others eat my bust when i fly past ye. The only thing you will see of me is my tail lights
DISAPPEARING in to the HORIZON :)

Nick i will send you pics when the Karmann has arrived.

I don't think they have to be in the movie. The reason I say is because of my 55 Mercedes gullwing

No they don't Rick, just built in the style of the Movie.

I should say something about the Cannonball Run CBP before you guys get too many ideas. I will be starting a seperate post for it in another day or 2, but the "rules" will be a little stricter than whan Nick has going on here so some of your ideas aren't going to work for it. An Audi isn't going to work unless you can find a really old Audi kit. You'll see what I have in mind soon enough and I think you will like the idea that I have for it.......Now back to your regularly scheduled Rally....
