Amazing low miles and price!

Those wheels are American Racing 24s. Fairly popular years ago, especially with auto-xers. Cheap and lightweight. I've seen many a set in junkyards and bought mine for only $60! A darn good value for a 14x6 5x100 wheel that was 13.5lbs.

My first foray into aerodynamics, speedholes! I really did regret it. I actually stapled window screen behind the holes to make them blend in more, at least at night. If I was the junkyarder then as I am now, I could have just grabbed a bumper cover for $20 to undo it.



At least she was quick. Went a best of 14.3 in the quarter mile at Thompson Raceway Park. 1200' above sea level and it looks uphill.
