Good lord, Speedy!  If I wasn't all the way in Texas, I'd join your operation for sure!  Good luck, I really would like to see this happen.  Nothing will top this!  It would pretty much make my Tyrell/Mustang idea a moot point, but I have not had the cash flow lately to make that happen anyhow.

I am mentally divergent in that I am escaping certain unnamed realities that plague my life there. When I stop coming here, I will be well...

Re: Long lost Tyrell-Corvette-Peterbuilt on ebay

OK, we've decided that any team that brings this car will get free entry. You are required to retain the fundamentals of the design--8 wheels, twin rotary engines, etc, etc.

I figured I'd throw that out there because SpeedyCop might actually do it.

Re: Long lost Tyrell-Corvette-Peterbuilt on ebay

Any idea of which race you would take it to Speedy?   That may be the tipping point for me pulling the trigger.

With the now free entry fee I say all the races until it either dies or they rescind the free entry.

BTW, I'm sure I'm gonna have hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars tied up in this thing before it hits the track. You aren't buying part ownership, you're buying a guaranteed seat in its first Lemons race.

Re: Long lost Tyrell-Corvette-Peterbuilt on ebay

Yeah, I'm really wondering how high it will go. If the chin or the grunty comedian want it, we don't stand a chance. Those guys could throw 10 or 20k at this just for a conversation piece in the garage. Still, I'm gonna bid to win to the best of my meager ability. Screw my credit. Screw the mortgage. This is too epic! One, maybe two spots left. I'm waiting on payments for the last two spots now. They ARE NOT LOCKED IN until I'm paid, so if you're waiting, don't. I've already had a number of "I'm in." "Okay, I guess I'm out." That won't help me pay for this insanity. $$$ talks. Specifically, $500 paypals to speedycop@comcast.net talks.

Speedycop-  I hope you get this thing.   I am a rotary guy, and will gladly help you figure it out, too bad I'm on the other side of the county...   I'd be on your team and offering up my shop as a place to work on it if y'all were closer.     

    Good luck!

If Speedycop doesn't win the auction, there's only one choice:

Build a better one! 10 wheels?

Dude, I seriously just got off the phone with cousin Dave, and we decided the exact same thing! We'll build our own monstrosity if we have to.
The finalized driver lineup is as follows:
(drumroll please)
Me
David Mills AKA Caddywrecker

Joe
Mike
Roger

Now all we have to do is win the auction!
