After talking with Crovo yesterday he suggested that I stop in and post some pictures of the "Project". No its not a b-body, but it is rear wheel drive. We are running in the 24 hours of Lemons race at Loudon (the Loudon Annoying) on May 7th and 8th.










One of these day I will find the time to finish the 77, that is if racing the Meatwagon doesn't take over my life. Volvos Rock well old ones anyway

Yes I will be one of four drivers. We are going to a BMW club driving school tomorrow with it at NHMS.

Here is a video of a little testing we did at work.

Awesome man!

It actually looks like I may be flying back to Boston on that Friday to be there just in time for the race.

Mostly because I will also be driving in this race. I joined a team as the 4th driver running a 94' Cutlass.

Gonna be a F'n Blast!

Well if you do want to do it now is the time to get started. We have been working/planning this for almost 2 years and actively working on the car for a year. Our goal next year is to run 3 races The NJ, CT, and NH races. And the paint job is somewhat Badass It is Swedish flag blue glidon exterior house paint and its semigloss. Get me some stickers and I will put them on.

Well our day of testing did not goes as planned. We threw a rod through the side of the block on lap 8. On the plus side it handles really well.

Damn Chris, that sucks! Who knew it still had enough juice left in it to do that???

I'm sure you can find and swap another in time. Too bad you missed out on the practice time though.

Were you driving when it blew up?
