Darco wind tunnel disassembled and for sale $600,000USD

I spoke to Lance of Darco to day . We have lost a resource . 130' L x 50'W x 32'H room needed for reassembly. He said the tunnel could be set up as a mobile uinit. Lance estimates 4 trailers would be needed for transport as a mobile set up.

It's sad news.When we were there last,Layne told my brother that things were kind of iffy.No good deed goes unpunished as they say.
I'll contact Gary Eaker at A2 Wind Tunnel.Looks like North Carolina is my last chance for completing the Spirit project.If that doesn't work out,the only thing I can think to do is see if CAR and DRIVER will run the truck at Chrysler Proving Grounds for top speed.None of the other wind tunnels will let 'little people' in.

I guess the snowboarders weren't enough to keep it going?
