Counting down

5 weeks to go until Sears Pointless! Geez, we'd better get going on the thematic portion of this event...

Paul and Bill are putting the motor back in after going through various sections, and replacing the water pump. The plans that Mulry came up with are 'in the mail' and we should be getting those any day now (hint hint). Tonight we'll watch the movie again (or for me, the whole thing) so we can remember some of the ... 'finer' details!

Do you realize we have to have our entry in for Thunderhill/Goin' for Broken by Feb. 27? Hmmm...

Which T-Shirt Front?

Ok, so which front do you like better? Don't let the fact that there are literally tens of hours (ok, maybe not tens) in the illustrated one and only about 60 minutes of finding the right font in the other one. Just vote on which one you like better.

Happy New Year?

Here's to wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

Now on to the important stuff. We have officially been recognize as a race team by the Judges appointed in creating the Sears Pointless race, part of that ever growing series called 24 Hours of Lemons. We are now "Stick Figure Racing/The Animal House Death Mobile." I personally want welcome two new-comers to the team for this race, Pat Mulry and Stevo to the team. These guys come to us from the TARP racing association out of Dallas, Texas. They come from similar stock as we do, broken engines, blown head gaskets and heroic fixes. So they are well seasoned racers capable of dealing with the stresses that are the Lemons series. Pat and Stevo will be doing their part by working on the theme, design and a limited amount of build based on the fact they are over a thousand miles away from the car (minor details!). We will be linking our blog with theirs so that everyone can stay on the same page. Pat has already started working on ideas, so here is the link:

During the next two months we will do our best to make this theme come alive. Bill, Kirby, Judy and I will start work on getting the car prepped. After all, this is a race and not just show and tell. We have something to prove and that is that we can really compete with the rest of the crazies that are willing to throw their personal lives out the window to make their dreams happen.

So from all of the crazies that make up Stick Figure Racing / Tarp Racing,

Happy New Year!
