First off Welcome to Sixth annual Cannonball Run, after I had an open pole on the Forum, the theme with the most votes ended up being Unlimited.
"I'd like to welcome you all to an event that's sometimes been called the Automotive counterpart to the Bay of Pigs."
"You are certainly the most distinguished group of highway scofflaws and degenerates ever gathered together in one place"
"Of course you know certain skeptics note that perhaps 10,000 of the nation's most elite highway patrolmen are out there waiting for us after we start, but let's stay positively: Think of the fact that there's not one state in the 50 that has the death penalty for speeding... although I'm not so sure about Ohio."
Now before we get going we need to remember that your vehicle will have to follow a few guidelines.
Remember we are racing on City, County, and State Roads and Streets, so we need to be "Street Legal"
Below are some quick guidelines I came up with after referencing several State Guidelines and my Copy of the Highway Traffic Act.
License plates both front and rear. (If Applicable) (Depends on the State or Province you live in whether you have 2 or 1)
Seat-belts. (more of a recommendation in our application)
Windshield glass if applicable, or if no windshield, a helmet must be worn.
Permanently fixed fuel tank that is not fully exposed.
Tires that are approved by the DOT to be used on public roads (no racing slicks). (We may let this one slide)
Hood – you need one. Hood scoops or air intakes can’t be more than 10 inches higher than hood surface. (Some States & Provinces)
Again these are general guidelines to even it out a bit.
So lets get to the Start Date:
January 1st 2013
December 1st 2013
Now the Rules Rules:
1.) First rule, as per Jantrix, this is all about having fun.
2.) You must show a picture of the kit, collection of parts, or re-builder that you are starting with. If it is possible try to post at least 1 update per month even if it just says "I haven't finished any work, but I'm still here..."
3.) On December 1, 2013 I will start a new thread in the "Under Glass" section for everyone to post their finished entry's, you must post their to be included in the voting.
I'm still not sure what we'll do about prizes yet, but I'll straiten that out and make an announcement in the CBP when we have made a decision.
4.) Multiple entries are allowed.
So guys Have Fun and we'll see you in Redondo Beach!
