Just take my MK2. It's much closer to race ready.

Such a cool car, if it ever needs a new home...

Re: Rough lotus cortina $400

She is cool. I'm still suffering withdrawals since 2014 - last time she tracked.

Working on getting her street legal currently so I can at least cycle the fluids and work out bugs.

Re: Rough lotus cortina $400

To answer the " More" question

She started life as a 1968 GT
In 1970 two brothers in Wisconsin bought her used and turned her into an SCCA racer (original Paint scheme and number still)
Ran in the 70's and won a title or two.
Was sold late 70's early 80's to a guy that used it to get his SCCA licence and somewhere in the 80's she landed in parts in a barn.
Was bought by a group in 2000 and brought back to life. They ran her in vintage along side their FF1600 until they decided to get into Formula Atlantics.
She landed in South Jersey in 2009 with a nice guy who ran her once or twice before his wife got ill. I bought the car from in and she ran NJMP and NHMS in 2014.

Motor was rebuilt after NJMP where it melted. Had to over bore on the rebuild so she's a bit more peppy, but the rear seized a bearing at NJMP taking us out of a good C class run.

It was built in the 70's with alot of nascar period tricks.  Front springs are cut 1970 6cyl mustang bits. rear springs were de-arched to lower. two stock sway bars are joined together to stiffen the front. homemade panhard bar in the rear. the open rear was welded. oil cooler and accusump were added (before me).

Being an SCCA car, I had to upgrade the radiator as she wasn't meant for more than 25min of running at a clip.

She weighed in at NHMS at 2210 with 8gal of fuel 52/48 balance. Manual steering box and manual brakes . It's a time warp to lap her.
