For those of you who don't know, we here at Stick Figure Racing are pretty crazy! For our latest endeavor we will be chopping up a perfectly good Toyota MR2 and trying to squeeze what we can under the Fiat Multipla body. For most of you that is a travesty but for us it make perfect common sense. :-) It was a sad day when we brought our little Multipla home and found that there is no frame left, which meant the body is literally the only thing that can be saved. So here are the first steps in our Plight to revive one of the very first Fiat 600 Multipla Abarth X2 's
As you can see Larry is in one of his moods and cannot be bothered at this time.
After about 30 minutes this is what has been accomplished.
An hour and a half into the project and after going to Home Depot for more Sawzall blades the top is removed.
Here is Larry explaining the rear wheel drive features of the MR2. Tune in next week for the chop shops latest damage that will ensue when we get our hands on the Multipla.
Buttonwillow raceway was the scene of the 3rd and final part of the trilogy we called Animal House. I would have to say that this year was all around our best performance so far in the 24 hours of Lemons endurance racing. To wrap up I would like to say Thanks to all who supported us in our endeavors. Andy: For all of the electronics expertise, willingness to get in and get the job done at crunch time. Bill: Working on the car on every weekend even though you missed out on the last two races. Getting us Parts at cost, that was awesome. Racing at Sears with us and keeping me from killing another driver on purpose. Larry: Helping on the car even though for two of the races you were on your brothers team. Racing with us at Thunderhill and willing to dress in a Toga and looking like an idiot like me and Pete. Pat: For sending me a plethora of invaluable info on the MR2. Allowing me to come out and race in your car to get a better feel of what the MR2 can really do. Racing with us at Sears and keeping me from killing another driver on purpose. Stevo: For flying all the way from Indianapolis to drive with a bunch of idiots and not complaining about how tight the car was to get in and out of. Oh yea and keeping me from killing another driver on purpose. Pete: For being a real stand up guy and racing with us at Thunderhill. Dressing up in a toga and enjoying it a little too much! Ruben: For joining us at Buttonwillow and driving the hell out of the car. Committing to race with a team you had no previous knowledge of and being a real stand up guy. Judy: For all of your support financially, mentally, and most of all your willingness to get your hands dirty without any complaints. Also thanks for being the only driver on our team who had "0" black flags for the whole season...Way to Go! Bob: For doing most of our Logo designs, theme designs, and working on the car even though we never got you out on the track. Team Snowspeeder, Killer Bees, and Free Range Racing for supporting us in the pits. Thanks to all of you. Next year will be bringing a lot of changes to Stick Figure Racing. As most of you know we have a new car in our stables and another that we will be building in collaboration with Team V-Ram so come out and join us in all of the fun. If I forgot anyone please forgive me and thanks for your help. If your reading this and have a tingling feeling in your pants and want to race with us let us know. We welcome all people and sponsors and cash.
