Topic: Super secret car build for Dallas

The Bastardos are building another car for Dallas and we have a little ways to go.  In the past I've had access to full machine shops with CNC tools and heavy fab equipment.  Now I have a plasma cutter, welder, bender, ancient lathe and a random assortment of other tools.

Here I am cutting out the last remaining bits of floor to eradicate the cancer:

Can anyone guess what the car is?

No fair if you are a judge or team member as you have seen it

I thought the rules said all airbags have to be removed...

Yee-Haw 2010 "Most Heroic Fix" & "I Got Screwed" -2 trophies for 1 lap, but I took checkered on my lap.
Gator-O-Rama 2012 "Organizers Choice" -2 laps 1 trophy, but i still finished ahead of an E30
Yee-Haw 2013 No trophy -26 laps, I think I see a pattern here

Those three are all natural.   I love Texas.   

Mara ( in the middle ) is even an experienced LeMons driver having competed in Houston this year.
