Vomit bags located in the seat pocket…

Reno SCCA holds autocrosses at the Stead Airport in Stead fairly often.  The airport is 15 mins away from my house in Reno. I’m used to events that are 45 min+ away from my house. It’s a nice change to have something so close. It was short as well only lasting 4 hours for my group. They even had free runs after 4 pm. Such a club up here. Small gallery set:

I’m still having troubles with my fuel cutting out, vapor locking, and overall killing the driving experience. Made some mods since the last drift event to help but it still seems to not be enough. I have an interesting solution coming soon… I did get a new battery. XS Power 680. Its basically a copy of the odyssey batt. Works for me. The car starts consistently every time now.

Size matters… yata yata…

I’ll be installing some new suspension on the chevette soon. There’s another Reno drift on August 17th. Gotta get it straight by then. For the front, it looks like I will have some issues with the sway bar and steering arms. Lowering in general also scres me because of how low the torque arm is mounted… Something might have to be done there. Everything else looks straight forward. Stay Tuned on these upcoming mods!  Gallery: 

Now.. Some of that there inspiration.

So many styles, varieties, and flavors. There is no set path. I don’t think too many cars have that about them.

  1. Hi, wondered what had become of my 76. Names Shawn Rosser. I built this car from the ground up. Have all picks from the beginning. I had to sell her as I lost my house a year ago. Miss this car a lot. Thanks for taking care of her.
