Just got a 72 squire wagon, 24 hours of lemons car.
« on: February 26, 2013, 12:08:26 PM »
2.0 4 speed car.  Completed 1 lemons and 1 chump race in CA.  Received the "spirit of chump" award.

Probably going to put a 16 valve Zetec in it out of a ZX2 escort.  it should wake her up a bit.

Do you have a crappy one to trade?  What's you location?  I'm in PA.

I plan on putting stuff up there.  Not exactly sure what, though.

I wish (mine wasn't ordered with the option). I want one cause the wife and I are intending to use my wagon to go camping in, and I've been looking for one so we can travel with/store our gear up on the roof instead of on the ground while we're using the back as a bed. Let me know if you decide you don't want/need it!

Edit: I'm in TN, about 25 miles East of Nashville out I-40.

We didn't have much luck last year with this.  the engine (cyl #3) was trashed, which we didn't know before the race.

I traded an 80 mustang turbo 2.3 for a freshly redone 2.0 and we're taking it down to CMP in South Carolina in September.  running the Stihl supercharger again.
