Thought I would throw up an album of photos of "Otto" my 1975 2002 I am building up to go vintage racing in the North East.

Unknown engine internals, though I was told by the P.O. it has some minor headwork done. It will be sporting twin Mikuni 44 side draft carbs, welded rear end (3.91), stock 4-speed, solid engine mounts, poly everything bushings, except where the poly wouldn't cooperate and delrin had to be used.

SPAX adjustable suspension with lowered springs, and a bit of an homage on the front disc brake ducts. Running EBC yellowstuff race pads, stock calipers and rear drums. Solid rotors.

Exhaust will be straight pipe, with a side exit pipe just ahead of the driver's side rear wheel. I will update as things progress. If you're in the N.E. and want to hit a road race organized by VRG, VSCCA, SVRA, etc...let me know! He's for rent.

Cheers,

Ian

It's a very nice car, particularly now that it's wearing Jagermeister livery.

Should be racing for sure at the Jefferson 500 at Summit Point, WV next spring, and might/possibly/maybe be racing before the 12 Hours of Sebring with SVRA.

I have some more pictures of it I will put up once I get them downloaded.

Cheers,

Ian

P.S. There's like, 6 more where that came from...if you're looking for some aircooled goodness...

Thought I would update this as we've made a bit of progress; I will have better photos once I take my DSLR to the garage. If anyone has any questions, let me know.

Here is some video of the car running:

In addition I added a couple of (bad) cell phone photos to the album.

Went to Summit Point, WV for the Jefferson 500 this weekend. Made it through the test day but lost oil pressure at the end of the day, so we get to tear down and re-build the motor for July and the Pittsburgh Vintage GP.

Nice build, good-looking car. (and agreed, bummer about the oil pressure...) -KB
