Run groups are out.  Going to be an incredible number of BMW's at this event, I counted (11) 2oo2's between run groups 4A, 4B and 3B, add to that (15) or so CSL's, four M1's, a couple of 32o's + a smattering of 18ooTi's, and bmw powered Chevron B16's.  Some really fast (other cars) in those run groups including Canepa's Porsche 917k.  Should be really fun to watch.....that is all I will be doing.  My car won't even be running then.  Very sad.  Totally fouled this one up.  Still looking forward to the event(s)

Shhhhh, don't tell anyone and maybe parking won't be as bad.

Sure, it's a bummer, but stuff happens.  The important thing is that you're progressing through every detail on one of the most amazing builds and that's what counts...you're doing it right!

Thanks.  You are right.  In some ways of being so short of the bar has taken some pressure off.  Had I boned out the money for the Quail event I would have really been bummed, I would not have been able to take the car there.

 

The car will be at Legends (in whatever state it is in) and I am really stoked about that, smartly I withdrew my application for the Races as well as Quail.

 

Currently body is getting finished up - color next week?

 

And....

New Brake Rotors Fabricated (Porterfield, Costa Mesa, CA)

Calipers rebuild/restore (PMB Performance, Sandy, Utah)

Custom Motorsport "style" Radiator (Brassworks, Paso Robles, CA)

Rack * Pinion Drop Steering Knuckles (SMR Components, Mundelein, IL)

Enigne - 8 flywheel bolts away from Dyno run (Bob Wirth, Hayward, CA)

 

I got sh^t all over the place, and a frightening number of checks to write for a s-load of money.  You can't take it with you as they say (and I won't be at this rate).

You aren't the only one who's stoked about your car going to Legends!  I'll be there in my Boxy '02 as well (first timer).  Looking forward to it!

Look forward to meeting you and seeing YOUR car.  I had a really great time at that event last year, I would guess this year will be pretty incredible.

 

On the bright side, it is fun seeing stuff coming out of boxes and containers and then being assembled (and ultimately into the car) and then of course it is pretty fun having parts and pieces continuously being delivered - early Christmas.

 

Cheers.
