Topic: Wanted: turn-key car near Detroit.

A few buddies and I have been reading about Lemons and it sounds like fun.  (Actually we just drink beer and watch all the youtube videos, but reading sounds more intelligent)  We decided to put a team together so we need a car. 

It MUST be
-Turn key condition
-reasonably close to Detroit
-manual trans
-easy to get parts for

Yes, we have very high standards. smile

Please let me know if you have something that meets those criteria.

Re: Wanted: turn-key car near Detroit.

I have a 2002 Jaguar X-Type built by Ford.  We are going to do our second race with it in May, so I will be able to confirm reliability then.  In it's first race it finished, but we were out for an hour with a broken dash.  Other than that no issues and expect the same for May. 
New H&R springs in all 4 corners
Passed 2016 tech and I expect it to pass 2017 tech
New adjustable rear control arms
I can deliver to Detroit in July.

Re: Wanted: turn-key car near Detroit.

We can bring the car to the Mid-Ohio track the weekend of October 20-22 or Summit Point September 15-17.

Bonus: We'll complete the transaction, you bring helmets & you can put it on track and do laps during open practice on Friday at either of these 2 events.
