well first off i'll start with a little background on the car. I picked this car up from the old owner of kore motorsports after he told me he was going to drop it off in my yard if I didn't take it off his hands. It was the old kore shop car but had been sitting in a storage field for 2-3 years and needed some work. The clutch didn't work, the heat didn't work and the interior was gutted. Sounded like the perfect budget race car. I dubbed the car the stinkbug after getting into it for the first time, the smell was overwhelming(for those that haven't smelled one think industrial strength lemon cleaner). I decided since the car already had a 2.0 swap i'd race in scca's new street mod fwd class. the car came together for about $1500 and was a blast to drive this season. I will be putting this up for sale in a few months so if anyone is interested pay attention.
