As you guys might have seen, I bought a circle track rolling chassis as a parts donor for my Sonoma. Thanks to help from some buddies, that rolling chassis is now a bare chassis and taking up precious parking space in my garage. 

According to the seller, it was built by Port City Race cars when they were still in Northern Michigan.  They do good work, but the car lives a rough life since then. It has ~500lbs of lead ballast that is worth a good bit of money, just needs a torch to remove.

I don't have the slightest idea what someone would do with it, but I'm really interested to find out. Maybe it could donate the driver cell to another car, maybe it will get rebuilt into a budget track day special, who knows. Its free. 

First come first serve, you'll need a flat bed trailer and some help to get it moved.

 

Call or text me, 3135051084.

Wish I could tell you Just How Good those chassis were, We used one for our 9:1 car at 2900 lbs . Gary Powell Liked a Tight Car and would Sail it off into a Corner so far Other drivers would lose it trying go as deep,

how urgently do you need it to go away?   i work in Oak Park and live in Canton, and I could really use a lot of that tubing for the Challenge car, but i have no place to put it until mid April.  :-(

Not too urgent, if you could come help me bring it outside of the garage temporarily I'd be a lot more willing to wait. Really like my parking spot back haha.

I'm local and up to help out here guys.  Plus I get to meet you both!  I have morning meetings on the east side but will be back in the afternoon.  I'm happy to come back for the slice and dice party too!  Two reciprocating saws, portable plasma cutter, and my cutting torches.  We'll have it cut up in NO time!

I think this might be the ticket as long as AngryCorvair is okay with it!

I've got cutting tools to spare, we can do a pretty quick disappearing act. Unfortunately, I've got crazy work hours until the end of this week and will be out of town all weekend, Ill shoot you guys a text when I'm back.

Well I mean...if you're going to make a party out of it...I can watch you all move it?

Only half serious/half kidding Elliot.  But can lend a hand if hand is needed, or watch others lend hands and offer constructive criticism on technique?

I’m thinking this thread went in a direction no one anticipated!  Who’s bringing the beer?  Should I invite Adrian along?
