      Semantics, sure, but it is completely built and setup to be a race-car, just hasn't gotten there yet. Would you preferred I use "track-car"?

      It's not a race car until it has a logbook. What class is it built for?

      Cool car. Not a huge fan of Liveries unless it is a 100% racecar but it looks pretty period correct. Gotta love a nice ducktail and widebody though. Nice pics.

      Okay wait now I'm confused. I did a google image search for "washburn motorsports" and this car showed up, but NONE of the pics were of it on the track...

      Is this thing even tracked? Or did he just finish it and hasn't been able to take it out yet?

      It was literally finished a week or so before the show. It still has some things to wrap up.

      Nope, left the E at home and drove a black STaSIS S4 on HRE's. I stayed off the strip for the most part this year.

      Thanks for the compliments everyone.

      Yes the tires are old but I bought them brand new and they are super soft and nice and sticky, If I thought for a sec they wouldn't be safe I wound't have used them. Its also hard to find tires in a 345/35R15.

      Let me help you out. Just got the car done a month ago and have driven it around town to work some bugs out but other than that I will be at the track in Dec if all goes well. I have put about 165 miles on it.
