    Zack’s 69 herbie bug is out back. It has title issues…and gave its engine to the 66 project. I think it would make a good class 11 car to build.

    can’t get all james bond on that shit and use some ink removing eraser to “clear” it up…  😉  😉   some secret potion of crl and bleach…with three drops witches blood… 😉  😉

    6footdan, if I remember right. Is a cool car. I like the ones here in this picture. Must have Subi’s in them with those skid plates. 😎

    Especially when you factor in all the charges/fines for jumping it in residential areas…

     

    I like this Class 11 idea Cole ? I’ll help!

    I’m so keen on this! I’d love to see KCW race! Might be able to get some sponsors to supply parts for it too.

    YEAAAAHHHHH!

    Looks like the first race in 2018 is on April 4th – San Felipe 250. Easy enough to have a car ready by then.

    Pat and I have been looking at junk all evening. We got in touch with the red car above. Its not so good.

    This car below is in San Diego and looks like the one. The cage is good. Has all of the right stuff, and already been through tech inspection.

    Nice! All the hard work is done looks like. Fresh motor and a KCW paint job, good to go!
