Come on Jeff, don't be afraid jump right into ITA.... Get a CRX, and go for it.

Did you sell the 944? If so, hope you got a fair price.

Hey, man, that's half the fun! <grin> We could put a sticker on it, park it in the garage at work, and wrench on it during lunch...<grin>

Seriously, if you get a V-dub, let me know; I know those cars very well. In fact, I just got out of my garage swapping the tranny (4 to 5-speed) on my A1 turbodiesel. Built several A1 GTi and Scirocco for ITA (way back when) and ITB. I'd be glad to help in any way I can.

You know I have a not-so-latent desire to build an ITB Golf III...

Whatever happened to the plymouth horizon TC-3 that was always winning at summit point a couple of years back?

There ya go, Jeff: an ITB ChryCo 2.2L. Bullet-proof engine and tranny, "ok" chassis that can be fixed with a good cage design. I know these cars, too, as I built and raced an ITA Shelby Charger and SSA Shelby CSX, both successfully. I think this car has a lot of potential.

C'mon, man, let's build a car! http://Forums.ImprovedTouring.com/it/smile.gif

grega: Please email me at [email protected] I am in the process of building up an 83 Shelby Charger that raced Showroom Stock at one time, into an ITA. I could use some pointers on prep.

If we are talking ITA- Our ITA VW is for sale. Only Raced 2x this year but it had a First and 2nd at Watkins Glen.

Former OMP Challenge winner and has finished
1st, 4th & 9th at ARRC + an 11th after a bad guage caused the driver to shut it down with a lap to go.

BTW Johns Rabbit is a good car- We built it.
It held a lap record at Watkins Glen.

Sure you don't want to buy an ITS Mazda, Jeff? I promise it'll be cheap compared to a Porsche! ; )

Last I heard Jay Frye's Scirocco is still for sale. It is a fast car. I think it's in the classifieds section of this site.

Steve Hoffman's 1983 Horizon/Turismo TC-3 would still be a front runner or race winner today running 1:32s at summit point.

I'm surprised nobody else has been running this car...........unless there are none to be found anymore.
