    B/U=Back Up light switch.

    I can tell that it was a runner that was just apart because the header is really rusty. The fact that it's a Berg Cup car explains a lot. Battery relocated with an electrical junction panel typical of a race car in place of it. This one is lacking a few vital things to run such as (obviously) a radiator and hoses, plug wires, and throttle cable. I also think that trans probably has the same 1-5 gear set with an even shorter final drive than me, just a hunch . Good one!

    That is a MkI Scirocco. The motor could be a 1.8L or a 2.0L running a 1.8 SOHC head and a pair of, I believe Solex, sidedrafts(). That guy has about a weekend of work to get that thing to run. Seeing the strut tops are camber plates, he plans to drive that car! I can also see the B/U light switch, which leads me to believe he is probably using the same gearbox I am.(Do you remember how close those gears are, Nick? ) Lots 'o fun!

    WOW WOW WOW WOW!

    That is some nice work! That chassis almost looks 1:1. Great job, can't wait to see what's next!

    '76 Scirocco Cup car. Not sure of the name of the series and I'm feeling too lazy to dig out the reference material.

    Naahh, it's getting run over by the steam roller! That's where the windshield went.

    Great job, Chris! I've watched all your updates at the meetings along the way and all I can say is WOW! I'm also glad to see you re-hung the doors; much better! Now just look out for Jason, he's catching up!

    Yeah, where's a squirrel when you need one?

    George, the "fish" Taurus had a short-lived SHO version that had a ridiculously small trunk lid spoiler and that V8 that Ken is talking about. Even more of a sleeper than the original two SHOs. You really had to know what you are looking at with one of those.


    And gas here is still above $1.90. It's better than where we were but I'm afraid we are going back there after Jan. 10.

    I knew it was a Mitsubishi.... How about a Lancer Celeste? 76-80 or so?

    edit: Also known as a Plymouth Arrow 76-80

    19 out of 20. I got one of the slogans wrong. I was surprised I got the Aurora logo right!

    That's right! Diesels aren't slow, gutless and noisy anymore. Besides, as Art mentioned elsewhere, we still aren't up to snuff on battery technology. Not where we can have real electric cars that have a useable amount of distance between charges, at least.
