2014 Cannonball Run CBP

Well folks, it's that time of year again. The 2013 CBP has just wrapped up and we had a record number of racers at the finish line this year. We had 21 entrants and 23 finished entries.

This year after deliberating with our previous hosts, we came up with the decision to do a Themed build this year.

The Theme this year is "The Last Cannonball, 1979"

No, this won't be our last, and it wasn't Brock Yates last, it was the last Sea to Shining Sea memorial cup dash, basically meaning a cross country point A to B type race. After that the race was the "Cannonball One Lap of America" race in which the race became more of a Rally.

So, this year all entries must be of 1979 and earlier subjects. HOWEVER this time we won't be limited the parts used on the racer to this year, so feel free to use those modern drivetrains and rolling stock.

As with every year, Official start date will be January 1st 2014, and the end date will be December 1st 2014.

"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"

Now the Rules Rules:

1.) First rule, as per Rob (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, 2014 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.

4.) Multiple entries are allowed.

So guys Have Fun and we'll see you in Redondo Beach!

I guess I'll stake my ante.

With a nod to Niko, I'm in with a '69 Torino. Just not a Talladega. Looking forward to starting Jan. 1st.

Interesting choices so far folks, so far it looks as though it will be a very late 60's to late 70's Mix.

Ouch, that's Funny! :lol: I just hope that yours will end up better than mine did, since there came a little paint disaster on the last minute rush... :P

But this year, I promise to finish my Charger Daytona. B)

Awesome theme this year, I was going to wait until the first of the year to enter but eveyone else is already signing up so I figured I'd join you guys. :)

If it's okay I would like to try for two enties again this year, nothing over the top this time. My tag team theme will be from my personal favorite auto makers, Dodge and Pontiac. A 68' Dodge Dart and a 77' or 78' (depends on the kit) Trans Am that I will covert over to a 77' Firebird Formula as a tribute to one my Dad once owned a long time ago. I have the Dart on hand but not the Firebird so I will wait until after I have it to post or start my builds, if that's okay of course. :)

With that said I wish all those who celebrate a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as well, see you all in 2014! :)

Hmm. So a few years ago I did a Stude road racer that I eventually turned into a Carrera Panamericana racer. Well this time it's going to be a '70 Cuda, Pikes Peak racer wannabe. I'm in.
