Uber cool! More details on spec please, that looks fantastic and I bet not one 250 GTE was sacrificed in the process.
Most car fun I have ever had for under two grand. The spectator kids at the races loved the car, looked just like a big hot wheels toy. They also liked the sink drain plug stoppers in the tops of the Weber throats which you can barely see in the four Weber bell mouths sticking out of the hood. To a 1275 Mini Cooper S motor I added the two down draft Webers, custom intake
manifold, an Iskenderian cam, magnesium push rods, high compression pistons, custom headers, lowered front and rear suspension, wide wheels, very wide CanAm qualifying tires, roll cage, disc brakes up front, custom fit lower seat, bench flowed cylinder head, radiused valve seats, fuel cell,and Koni shocks and ended up with the worlds most fun and fastest Mini Moke. Note the front tires are two inches wider than the rears, they were used CANAM qualifying tires I bought at a great discount from Roger Penske. Great adhesion as they really got very gummy when hot, Bryan's job was to pick out all the rocks and gravel which had vulcanized to the tire after each run. Same rolling diameter as the original Moke tires. Cornering was truly unbelievable. Top end was geared for about 88 mph at 6700 RPM and could leave rubber in third, and would take tight corners faster than you would believe. With this set up I won many more trophies and races than I ever did with the Ferrari up until Pebble Beach in 2008 and the 6 shows following. Roll bar added to chassis stiffness. The bottom of the drivers seat is literally on the rear seat floor. Instrument panel is a bent aluminum cookie sheet "borrowed" from HelenAnn. The nose and hood were modified after a badly misjudged 180 degree corner at the Giant's Despair Hillclimb, at least the aerodynamics improved on the former brick face. Also added some lexan under body and at base of nose to "enhance ground effects". ;+) By the way the end result was taking the SCCA NE Div Solo 1 championship in 1974.
