Here's An Idea

Every month or two I get a look at a magazine called Grassroots Motorsports (www.grassrootsmotorsports.com) that’s a pretty good read if you’re into building your own at-home racing car.  One thing they do that I really like is sponsor a rally every year for cars that their readers build on a budget.  The budget is set by the year.  In other words, this year, all cars that participate have to cost less that $2,007 to build.

You may think no one could build a car for that little, but they do.  In fact, the build some really great machines.

So, why not have a class at collector-car shows for vehicles that cost “less than the year” to build? That would be fun and challenging.  Sure, you might have to start with a “Kenny’s Klunker” car and use parts you have sitting around your garage, but we’re sure some folks could accomplish some great things.

What do you think?

    With the price of parts going up by so much every year and the amout they let you spend increasing by only $1, how long can they expect to have this contest run?
