Topic: My Wrecked 95 Civic race car

NOW is your chance to own a much sought after HONG NORRTH race  car!!!!! Just needs a little TLC to be a world class race car once again!!!!

A few years ago I built a "serious business" race car. It had a great car running in the SCCA STL class including a top 10 finish at the Runoffs last year. Really had it running good earlier this year at Road Atlanta...

Squirrel 1.0 has donated all it's good suspension and motor bits to Squirrel 2.0 and the remains of Squirrel 1.0 are sitting in my shop near Atlanta. The car needs a new front clip. Cheap but a lot of work. Pretty much everything from the firewall forward should be repalced. It is setup to drop in a ATL 22 gallon fuel cell. The  cage is fantastic.

I'd really like to see it go to a Lemons team. The car was a great race car and I'd love to see it on track again. Unfortunately I have too many projects so this one is just taking up space. I'd like get a few $$$ for the remains as the cage is fantastic. Replace the front clip, radiator, throw in a motor and trans, add some shocks, fuel cell and the multitude of little crap that takes up so much time. Bingo! Race car!

Squirrel 2.0? Here it is..

That was a WEIRD looking spin.  What happened?!

The Mists I just passed stuck his nose inside and I didn't realize he had a nose on me. We were both a bit aggressive there. There was a bit of contact that spun me into the wall

Do you still have this car ?  And where are you located?  I am a two time loser and looking to start a team and a huge Honda enthusiast.

His profile says Atlanta...so, yeah...probably answers that question.
