Re: Themes you'd like to see done

I've wanted for some time to see a team show up with a Seat (or suitably badged Fiat I suppose) and a Spanish Inquisition theme.

One day, Mister ffffffffffffffffox!

No limo has ever raced in Lemons. We would like to see a limo (provided Jay OKs the weight, of course).

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

Currently as a daily driver I have been driving a manual transmission rear wheel drive toyota previa. This thing rocks, but I started thinking of sweet themes and came up with the space shuttle.

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

The space shuttle is good, but I think the old "Super Chicken" cartoon theme is even better for a Previa.  Super Chicken's ride was the Super Coup.

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

If you have a car made in the 1980's and you are looking for a theme, this thread

http://retrorides.proboards.com/index.c … read=24470

May give you a bunch of ideas.

Personally I'd pay money to watch a gull-wing door'd 928 race against a Zender Capri, and Irmscher Astra and a Dimma 205.

But then I am a tad odd like that.

and the 928 estate needs minor tweeks

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

I was just thinking.

Why the hell has this not been done yet? Take two mr2s and cut and weld. People are talking about twin engine setups like it'll be cake, why not this then?
