Getting started

We're just getting this site setup.
Please be patient while we get our Internet act together. ;)


Some initial information...

We are preparing a car to enter in The 24 Hours of Lemons race events.
If all goes well, we will also participate in ChumpCar World Series races.
In a nutshell, both are series of endurance races running cars that cost no more than $500. No, really, check it out!

We currently have a 1986 Mercury Cougar.
It isn't running, but with a purchase price of $20.00, we have plenty of room in the budget to get the Cat purring again. Special thanks to the previous owner, Jason G., who took pity on us and our meager budget.

Although we have not yet dragged it home, we have
been given a 1977 (or 78?) Ford Thunderbird. Yep, that's right, zero dollars invested, so when it comes time to make her fly again, we will have the full $500 to work with. Like the Coog, Big Bird is in pretty rough shape right now. More special thanks to the previous owner, Brad, Bradster, the Bradinator, Bradatollah.

As for the Team, we're primarily a bunch of computer geeks. (uh, not the BestBuy kind) Some of us are pretty handy with a wrench and others are eager to learn. I'm RoadRunner, the primary zealot, and no stranger to greasy, banged up knuckles.
Most of my teammates are guys I have known for 20 years. We work pretty well together. I'll let them describe themselves later.

Until next time, drive safe!
