NMSA - I have seen this car and met the owner. Interesting dude. Def one of us. He may come to the Challenge this year to spectate.

This car is not for everyone but it is funky.

The longer you look the weirder it gets.

He seems to have an intrest in cooling.

He seems to have an interest in recreational amphetamines.

I figured this would be an interesting blank canvas of sorts for the right person to take on and de-Florida.  And then I got to the last picture and gave up on that entirely.  I don't love Novas but I don't think this car deserved that treatment.

What's going on with the rear bumper and the expanded metal?

Oh E36 M3, when I looked it at lunch I thought it was carbon fiber. No, it's more aero.

He's either bats, or a reincarnated Smokey Yunick...

So, I see a yellow Prestone anti freeze bottle. Next to that a residential plumbing valve, next to a marine battery box. 

Super small, yellow air filter above the carb but generally a huge crankcase breather filter (bigger than the air filter.)

Strange.

I wonder if he was trying to do a hot vapor engine, or whatever it is where you get the fuel hotter so it atomizes better?
