You should invite Jason Torchinsky (guy who wrote the Jalopnik piece) to drive the thing when it's ready. He's a total freak. He's also an Altamont LeMons veteran and has judged at several Buttonwillow races (that's him between me and Judge Jonny in the photo above). He thought up a lot of really twisted penalties.

Re: Media coverage of the Cessna 310 LeMons car project

I should, indeed. He'll have to come to CMP though, or NJMP. He told me about running Altamont. He wants the Buick GN story, so I'm writing that for Jalopnik.

I'll see if I can get him to judge a race in Speedycop country. That way he can be there when the airplane debuts.

Jason and I had a big MAKE versus Jalopnik LeMons rivalry back in '08, when I wrote for the latter and he wrote for the former. The Black Metal V8olvo crushed the MAKE/Way Escort at Altamont (though the Escort went on to internet fame before it hella flipped over and got destroyed at Buttonwillow earlier this year).
