Add years. It was raced all over from 08-12, maybe longer. We revived it for CMP Fall 2017. Trans crapped in a few laps, but it's OK, the heads were cracked (freezing??) and we overheated the hell out of the motor. We thought we had a plugged rad, so we swapped that out, and 45 mins later, refilled the motor. Cold coolant was rapidly heated to 240 even after all that time, before we even fired the motor.

New heads and trans from an old MI friend that had relocated to SC, and wrenching until 1AM. Ran all Sunday.

I bought the car March 2018. Some lighweighting and lots of prep, we took it to Joliet 4/18. We still had 1-2 teething issues, stupid oversight on battery cable and exhaust, and the car had some snap oversteer issues.

Re: Then & Now pics (Before and After)

Found behind a Dodge dealership in North Georgia, this factory 4 speed car competed in a couple Grassroots Motorsports Magazine $2000 Challenges before the owner had a kid and let it sit for a decade.
While it  still had burgundy paint for the first event, a pic of me in the auto cross ended up in Hot Rod Magazine. This irritated the neighbor that helped us weld in the roll bar. He came across the street waving his issue saying I build $100k street rods and your piece of shit Valiant makes it into the magazine.

Two things help this that we have in spades with the Dustbuster as well:

Drivers that understand it is an endurance race and try to keep their nose clean

Car that was hideous from the factory, when new, wears and minor race blemishes well.
