It was great talking to those of you interested in purchasing a CM car in Toledo last weekend. At that time, I noted that a good car could be purchased in the $7500 to $15000 range. I also noted that sometimes deals pop up on the low end of that range. Well, here is one of the best deals I have seen in years:

83 Reynard + Spares, $8900, Chicago, IL

That is, the value of this package far exceeds its asking price.

CM Shoppers- This Reynard and spares pkg is a steal at $8900 and has a documented nationally competitive CM history, including two second place finishes at Solo Nationals/Forbes Field. Includes all CM &amp; FF legal updates; aluminum cylinder head w/ matching intake by CCH ($3k+ new), fresh engine by Jim Justice of Justice Engines (ex-Quicksilver) w/ one season, Hewland blueprinted gearbox by Taylor Race Engineering w/ auto-x gears, Two Dogg (TDI) alum diff carrier, Tilton F3 Clutch, lightened flywheel, double-adjustable Fox/Penske shocks by Stimola, Hyperco springs, TDI lightened rotors, mild steel HyTech Tri-Y header w/ anti-reversionaries, Coast Muffler to meet Solo sound, Mark Bushman built starter, and more.

Elzinga just smoked the class at the Toledo Tour w/ a similar car.

Call Pat Bullis and buy this car. Tires are cheap, maintenance costs are low, and you can tow it on an open trailer behind almost anything!

The parts alone in this car are probably worth more than the asking price for the whole car with spares.

If I didn't already have a recently refreshed CM car (with no where near the number of "go faster parts" in this one) I would be seriously thinking of changing cars.

Darn, I missed that one by days. It was a steal at that price.

Any reason not to follow up on this one especially now that it is down to $10K? http://siouxfallsracing.com/Forum/v...mp;start=0

Mark

I cannot think of any reason not to pursue given that it has already been configured for Solo. That is, the tough stuff (LD200 gearing) has already been done.

This one is back on the market. Original deal apparently fell through.

The Van Diemen is in Montreal. The last guy backed out because he could not get it shipped for less than $4000. Daniel, the seller, said someone could come up and get it and take it into the US through customs(but legally he could not do it) and then shipping would be a lot cheaper. Anyone know how this all works? Anyone interested in a road trip?

If it were me and in the budget I'd give that 90 VD a shot.

Ask on Apex. I think the question has come up before.

I lean towards the 90VD too, but the guy has not returned my e mails.

Mark

He has now returned my e mail and I have an appointment to see it next week. I also found out what I needed to know about car shipping.

I understand that this car is not prepared for autocross. Am I right? How much work will have to be done to prep an FF for autocross?

TIA

The prep will be almost all transaxle related. You'll want to replace the layshaft with the integral first gear unit because of all the standing starts we do. You'll also want a whole fleet of road racing second gear ratios to re-gear the remainder of the box to match the speeds we actually drive. The parts aren't cheap, but it is easy to do.

The 1st gear rarely is found used... So, plan on $450.

But he lists 22 gearsets in the listing... When I bought my car, I was able to sell off several sets that more than made up for the gears I needed to buy. I was able to find 2nd, 3rd, and 4th used as well. Except for the fixed 1st gear, you can plan on $50 either buying or selling used gears.

Thank you for the quick replies! So the total cost to convert a road race prepped FF to an autocross car will be $500+ in gears and some elbow grease? Will there be anything else?

Pardon a stupid question from a total noob in FF: Does an FF have a limited slip diff? I haven't seen one mentioned in ads.

Limited slip diff's are not legal.
