How about a Racey show car.



This 30 over 325 HP 350 V-8 midengined Corvair did 0-60 in 4.9 seconds. I never really raced it tho. The engine lives where the rear seat was. Weight distribution was 54% rear and 46% front...handled like a go cart but faster.

I don't have any current pics, but here's a list of what I have raced either Solo II or I, and AFM.

1976 Toyota Celica GT Liftback w/ 18RG

1976 Toyota Celica GT Liftback w/ 22RC

Crossle 35F

Ninja 250

And if you look at Super Street Dec 2006 issue, page 100 IIRC, there's a couple of TSX race cars I help build. Roger Foo is a good friend of mine, as is Mike Quan.

Oh, and victorr, a buddy of mine does the fibreglass bodywork on the Fortech Mini's as well as a few other race cars in San Jose and Sac area. Not too mention some work on some of the Reno Air Race P-51s. His name is Mike Meeks and he used to race GT-1 and Trans Am.
