For some reason I thought that Fiat Vspec was the "strutless wonder" car. Man, I'm getting old and people's project cars are all getting mixed up in my head. You're gonna do the steering rack? Sure would be cheaper than the $1000 headers I saw on that link I sent you.

thats davids car, im not sure if there is a paul from that site. i live about a mile from david and the vg30dett car is crazy, and if i remember soon to be a strutless car.

No, I'm paul, alex is my brother (who actually owns a 510, unlike me. I'm just a wannabe)

This guy is a part of a crew that seems to shy away from all the rest of us here in the lower mainland. Not sure why, but they have a little group of their own. I do find it odd. But I guess they have their group, and don't feel they don't need to mingle. Outside the photos, I can't add anything and I ,with Richard, am the organizer of this show.

Botoneta Racing in Guatemala runs a VQ sedan and wagon. Wild cars! It sounds like they built the front end around their VQ donor’s engine bay. https://www.facebook.com/BotonetaRT/
