Since it has started to drop below freezing I put the hardtop on in preparation for winter driving.

I realized how much mine (the acr) would actually sell for. Holy crap. 

I also cleaned up the white wheels, and put the stock parts back in storage. 

 

The amc? Its still on the trailer. At Dallas's dads place. Need to get it home.

Ran it in the Florida Autocross championship.

1st had to stop for some windshield wipers since autocross was taking place in a nor'easter.

Not happy with my performance but ended up third in HS.

Congrats on the second place finish doc!  You smoked me in the civic and were not far from 1st place.

I procured better cup holders, a power mirror switch and sub harness, and a new blower motor resistor subharness.

Submitted a sponsorship proposal that's not actually self serving, but will hopefully add a feel good element to autocross fun runs in 2022.

I Sent a rock INTO SPACE!

 

Also there was an Autox and Robbie Co-drove.  Hoosier R7s remain an inappropriate choice for the conditions I try to drive this car in, as 50*F does not make them grip well.   Car Ran well but was well off pace, Robbie and I had fun and the car was still running and nearly everything was still attached after the event.  But again everyone loved seeing the car run around, and I took a lot of Video so I will make something videoy soon.

We barely got the camera on for this shot, as Robbie was tightening it down while they were waving me to grid.  It's pure dumb luck that we caught space rock on it's adventure.  It was a big enough rock that 1/2 of it got stuck between the wheel and caliper and scratched the ID of the wheel.  It's all fairly shallow so I will just sand it down and spray some paint on it.  I had no idea how that camera view would work out, but it turned out to be a great shot that show a lot of suspension and wheel movement.

I drove mine to work with the top down and the heated seat nice & warm!

At this point, it's only wearing the windshield banner - I put all of the other stickers on magnetic backing, so they're off for daily use.

We still don't know. I think we're still hitting a limiter while nocones points out the final drive is really short. So there's controversy.

I got autocross in my drag launches, or is it drag launches in my autocross?  Either way we washed it down with champagne.

I changed the gearbox oil...

I would post a picture, but then you would smell gear oil for the rest of the day...

Better that than Guinness...

Well now I know what to bring to the challenge for you, if you ever get that car done.

I stripped down a damaged AC compressor for the turbine housing as I have another ac compressor that utilizes the same chra shaft size and has a larger compressor. The damaged one fits the mounting on my vehicle, hence the raiding it for the turbine housing.
