OK, posting it elsewhere but lets help TWO Lemons teams out at once...mine and the guy running the awesome '52 New Yorker in the NE.

Team Bad Decisions out of the Chicagoland area may need to activate the Lemons cross-country obscure bulky parts delivery network. You see, there is this 1952 New Yorker that might be able to use the Ford Explorer front brake conversion from our 1948 Plymouth (we are moving to a different front end for the collapsible steering wheel). The owner of the New Yorker is making measurements is 95% sure this will work

The one man team is in Maine but might be at NJMP in May and Bad Decisions will be at Gingerman in April. Any team going to both that could transport what is likely about <#100 of steering/suspension and brake stuff?

I can pay you in beer on the Midwest end...maybe they can pay in lobster on the other end?

Ultimate goal for the parts in ME but if you get it to NJMP I think we can find a way to get it North.

Seriously...no one going to NJMP and Gingerman?

Gonna bump this up.  Do not let my faith in our dysfunctional community's ability to move valueless parts over long distance for no pay be destroyed.  It is a friggin 1952 Chrysler New Yorker in need of help!

Got the NJMP to Maine side covered.

Re: Gingerman, who's in?

One of our team is supposed to do a USCA event there in August...unfortunately that is a bit out of your timeframe...so I'm not sure why I'm even typing this...

I did the "count the unused numbers" thing a few weeks ago, and there were 86 numbers taken.

Deduct the usual 10% and we should be in the high 70's for car count.

I get a spreadsheet from the database usually about 8 days before the race once they've punted all the non-paying fools.

That's a pretty reasonable number, based on past races there plus a little growth.

Re: Gingerman, who's in?

I never seem to remember to check out these threads when they pop up... but Statically Indeterminate (Purple S-10) is attempting to make it.  We are paid, and had to find a spare driver (someone on the team didn't do the math and his wife is due with their second child the weekend of the race).  But like many (some?) we don't have a running vehicle currently.  Figure we have a few weeks left to fire things up.  Hoping for better luck... this truck has lost a clutch or head gasket every race we've done at Gingerman.  Only time it didn't blow up something on us was the 24 hour event at Autobahn... go figure.

Well then I'd say it worked out pretty swimmingly then, assuming of course wife and kid situation turned out ok.

In a way, I'm saddened to see if all prettied up.  It's new appearance falsely conveys happy days ahead combined with high aspiration whereas its previous sun scorched patina gave an honest portrait of the despair within.

Re: Gingerman, who's in?

Looks like we're camping at turn 2. Thinking of bringing some bits of animal to cook on the grill. For sure there will be some cold ones about. Hey, it's Michigan...hard to walk blindfolded without hitting a brewery.

Tiki Time and our fairly reliable, super slow 33 mustang 4 cyl will be back for race #7.
We've camped at the turn 2 spots before. It is away from the main drag in the paddocks, but I'd rather be there with power than in the paddocks without it. Plus, it's closer to push your car for the Sunday starting grid (no engines until the race starts). The sites are not well defined and kind of pie shaped so meet your neighbors and work together on where you'll be, as there's a tendency to get in each other's way. There are spots marked on the pavement for your car, but they're faded and hard to spot. Between the spot on the road and the power box you can kind of tell what your area is.

A little bit. It's not located on the main ring road that goes around the primary paddock. Most teams seem to try to either pit around the timing tower(B) or on the tarmac area around turn one. But on the plus side, it's a short walk to bathrooms(F), food stand(E), fuel pumps, and pit in/out (though that doesn't matter all that much since the ring road has one way traffic that forces everyone around the loop).
