Topic: Let's Rescue the K-Car.
Yes, I'm serious. I'm making this post here rather than the K-Car subforum so more people might actually see it.
I have it on good authority that NSF will take the car back if it finds its way down to Florida. My team had actually been planning a dramatic rescue attempt to ferry the car from its current resting place to the Barber race in February, but now it looks like we won't be able to make it happen with the added time off work. We weren't planning to race the car, but I had a verbal agreement from a certain repeat offender to bring it from Barber down to NSF HQ after the race. I'll let him speak up in case things have changed.
So now I'm trying to crowdsource the effort. This car deserves another chance at glory. I'm not going to try convincing anyone this is a good idea; if you know the history you either want to help already or you don't.
The K is currently located in Wilmington, Ohio, almost halfway from Cincinnati to Columbus. There's a bunch of stuff that goes along with the car, but the current owner said he could help scrap some unwanted items. ("Like the car? Hurr durr.") The K is a wagon, so I'm willing to bet that all the good stuff (wheels and tires, tools, spare parts) will fit in the car itself. The car rolls, so it could be as simple as loading everything up and pushing/winching it onto a trailer (or even a 2-wheel dolly).
I think the easiest way to do this is for someone from the Midwest to bring it to a race farther south (CMP, Road Atlanta, Barber), and then hand it off to someone else to bring the rest of the way home to its makers. I can't help much with the actual delivery from Houston, but I can volunteer to help with gas money, coordination, and making small sacrifices to the dark eldritch powers that inhabit the car's chassis. I bet there's enough true believers out there to make this happen.
Thoughts? Questions? Comments? Are you a bad enough dude to help rescue the K? The world wants to know.
