Jungleland... wasn't that a Springsteen song? That was the Ford Aerospace lot in Newport. I stumbled across it driving by and stopped to watch. Lion Country... I remember getting air over one of the "jumps" in the lot. Not solo, but how about a vintage event on the old Pomona Fairplex course? Mid-90...

Wanted: El Toro Pro co-drive

Anyone out there want a tire-warmer? My recent experience is in rear-drive cars, but I started my auto-x career in a front-driver (in 1985) so have experience there as well (but likely also a bit of rust) so would welcome any opportunity. Happy to help out with whatever you need for the event. Messa...

Same here. There are about three days out of the year where this applies to me as well... unfortunately for SCCA, Easter is one of those three.

Re: Need an awsome tow vehicle?

Having been looking for this exact generation of truck, I can attest that this is a great deal. At this price, most of them out there have 200K miles or more.
Unfortunately, I have to find one with a back seat.

Mako, hook them nose to tail and use 'em like a train.

Re: towing help in Corona

I don't have a trailer that big, but if you know of a truck and trailer that can carry it, I'm around the next few days and am licensed to tow over 10K lbs.
Also can offer a free outdoor storage spot if they need it.

Re: End Link Question ...

Best thing you can do is throw away those RB links and get yourself something with proper rod ends. Those give you all kinds of stiction and binding issues, adding a lot of hysteresis and unpredictability to it's action.

Re: FS: 2007 Ford Mustang

Wow... if my MX-5 hadn't literally sold LAST WEEK, I'd be all over trading for this.

This takes me back to my roots... my first real auto-x car was an F/S 1990 Mustang.

Good luck with the sale.

I'm with Max on this one... I will never buy a mechanical part from Sports Imports.
