She won't win too many points for hooptiness, but she will do.

I'm with you.  My 203k mile scion Tc is hooptie-esque at this point.  I'm probably just going to run that unless the craigslist gods smile upon me in early January.

Did someone say Rally?

Heard about this today, planning to take part in my 400,000+ mile, '85 Mercedes 190D 2.2 with the 5 speed daily driver.  I'm gonna need every single one of those 50 horse power. Just hoping to finish as I need to make it to Barber.

Re: When's the next one?

Watch out for Tsog. He might try to steal your 190D.

Actually, he's looking for a car to drive/codrive in the Rally...

I found an Olds Calais Quad 442 on the Facebook group…but wrong coast. I think i'm going to have to resist the Tacoma want until after the Retreat.

Guess I need to fix my Subie.  that should be way better than the Dodge Diesel.....   Also Sheets!

Re: When's the next one?

So...all registered except for the entry fee, co-driver chosen, mascot chosen (Napoleon Dynamite the creeper), and planning begins! 2017 will be the year of Further Domination!

Re: When's the next one?

I pick up the car for this tomorrow.

I bought it sight unseen, so that's good.

Is that Buffalo, NY? Because that's very much the wrong direction. Buffalo, KY sounds more plausible to me.

Yes. Yes, it is.

Hard to say, but inasmuch as the first rally featured a route from Fallon, NV, to Las Vegas by way of Ely, "very much the wrong direction" is not a relevant criterion.

This car is SO much worse than I had foreseen. The Copart photographer has a bright future in Craigslist sales.

The Moscow to Buffalo segment reminds me a lot of the Fallon to Vegas segment, in the ideals that this is about taking inappropriate equipment to out of the way locations in very much the wrong direction. And for what? For funzies!
