If I were in Texas I'd go pick it up today even though I'm not the right person to hold it. I'm likely to be busy with Gastropod stuff at the Challenge, but I have my vinyl cutter ans LOTS of vinyl that I can contribute. I'm in for what I can be in for. What I see the need for now is a project manager. Who is up for that?

I’ll certainly do whatever I can, but I think whoever ends up with the car will need to coordinate any pre-Challenge work.

Unfortunately I don’t have a ready way to haul it or room to keep it.

I think I'm burnt out on project managing for a year or two. No idea how Jeremy did it multiple years in a row.

Minivan racer still looks interested in buying outright? Perhaps we shouldn't trump that unless he wants to project manage the build.

Also, another thought is that we should use some parts from spinout's collection if possible.

I'd be down to do a parking lot build if I can figure out logistics.  Sometimes it's easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission right?

I'd like to buy a few of these shirts.  ( I know in the past you've never taken our money for shirts, but perhaps Jim had a specific charity you could direct the funds to).  I still enjoy the Ferdinand / ttwo shirt and wear it often.

I'm in for a commemorative shirt for sure. If I happen to make it to the big dance, I'm also down for throwing wrenches in a parking lot. 

 

The koozie is probably simple Cooper Bold font, if someone is recreating.

Apologies GTXVette, I'm going to take some liberties in editing your post, so I can make responses...

I want her seen at as Many Different Venues as we Can:
  - auto crosses
  - Grid.Life
  - [Optima] Fastest street car( it's Not)
  - 1 Lap of America
  - The Cannonball Baker Sea to Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash (don't know if they still do that one, but I Believe Jim would Do That)
  - Around The World in, Well, a bunch of day's.

 Whose in? 

So, "they" as in the Yates, don't do the 'Cannonball Run' anymore... OneLap replaced it.  However, the nearest events to the original are the 2904, and the C2C Express, AFAIK.  Those events aren't really my, thing... and I don't know if GRM really wants to be associated with them.  But, they're out there.

The lack of title would probably preclude running OneLap, because the car needs to be plated/insured for the road to do OneLap; or will at least until that's sorted out by someone.  I'm not sure, but I think Optima might have a similar stipulation, as would the "Around the World" deal, AFAIK.

All that being said, I'd be down for taking it to OneLap, but I've got a ride 'in the works' for 2020.

Grid.Life seems do-able, and they come down to Road Atlanta... I reckon you could probably run it in the 'Street Class', maybe?  Dunno what your driver's resume looks like GTX... I know you've done some racing in the past, iirc?

Otherwise, I'm not sure I can be of much more than 'moral support'.

  You Cleaned that up nicely thanks.

         My Daughter Teach's High School English,   I Spent my Life Emulating Those Around me and sound like a 'Hick'. Lol

  Moral support goes a Very Long Way Thank you again.   It Needs to be venues that Get print in GRM Or where people can say I Knew Jim.

       last race i Drove was 30+ years ago, i won the Champinship Race in a Sportsman Class at Senoia,  Havn't Driven since then though. 

They film Walking dead There now.

If someone can confirm it has a VIN plate and that it hasn't been reported stolen in its decidedly murky past, lost title paperwork isn't terribly painful in a few states, including Kansas.

Kansas is a pretty long drive for wrenching assistance, but if I can help get it "legal", I absolutely will.

I Know the car came From another Atty. friend of Jims , It's Legal, 25 years old does not require a Title in Georgia just a Bill of Sale.      BUT, Tags Tax's and Title can be another Couple hundred but They are Good listeners at the Tag office,

Also why You Don't Tag Challenge Cars.

   when I was Young the Kanas area always seemed to have lots of SCCA type action, You Want it handed off next summer for a Couple shows then,  Once I have it here we Can All attempt a ..... what do they call the Kids that follow Rock bands from place To Place, Caravan becomes Carnival  pretty Easy.

It does seem shows around here come in bunch's, and then Nothing for 4-5 months then again,

Car can be sent to and left with a Group or someone wanting the Responsability Lol,   Make a Show and Pass her Off or send Her Home
