Gents,

It is useful to know who owns Historic Stage Rally Cars in the USA and Canada.

And it's been a while since the last listing was developed on this Forum. So if you still own a Historic Rally Car that potentially could be rallyed again please post your Car, your Name and State/Province below.

Don't hesitate to list new, uncompleted or dormant projects.

Thanks,

Jon Davis's 1979 SAAB 99. No turbo, only 8 valvles. But the chassis is so worn out, I don't think it will ever be rally capable again.

Do you know of a windshield source for these Colt/Galants?

Hi George,

Yes, I did see that Colt on eBay. Very pretty. If memory serves, the highest bid was under $1800 when the listing expired last week because the reserve wasn't meet. Don't know what it'll take to buy it. We'll see.

>Do you know of a windshield source for these Colt/Galants?<

Colt windshields are available fairly often, but they are impossible to ship. You really need to find a local donor. I'd suggest looking on Craigslist regularly. Aside from that, I can put you in touch with a guy in DesMoines if that's close enough. Let me know.

What exactly qualifies as "historic"...25 years?
If so, we are hoping to have El Rabbito...1978 VW MKI ready and sorted for Olympus.
Not nearly as cool as an old Lancia, Escort or Saab but hey.

Josh,

For this listing absolutely YES it qualifies! And Rabbits are way cool! Always were! Keep it on the stages.

For Olympus you'll have to ask the Organizers how they'll define Historic. It's their event, so it's their call.

A suggestion.

Why not petition Rally America to have an H Class championship at the 2007 100AW?

You would not have to qualify for it during the year in each region. Just simply have a single event championship every year at 100AW.

My project has been dormant for 8 years now, but it may finally be showing signs of life. It should, finally, be getting its cage soon.

I am Ben Bradley, I am in Portland, Oregon,and I eventually hope to rally my Mk 1 Cortina GT.

I still haven't decided whether to make any attempt to keep it approximating a period piece, or if I'm just going to use the shell and make some sort of Frankentstein with newer bits. I certainly am not going to make any effort to build it to any FIA appendix J (or is it K?) specs. It will just be a Gp 2 rally car (or maybe Gp 5 if I actually follow one of my twisted thoughts).

Ben,

I like your twisted thoughts. Morten in BC owns the legendary Prevolution 1974 Vodge Dolt. Periodically, I tell him how easily a Turbo 2.6L Starion fits into it. He may be beginning to weaken... er... see the benefit of Group 5.

Good question. Here's one Olympus organizer who will vote to include a historic class, if we have five vehicles more than 25 years young.

I'm no purist, but I like to see vehicles with age appropriate power plants from the same manufacturer. So if Ben installs a twin cam, he can call it a Lotus Cortina and run historic, but if he goes for the M-sport Duratec turbo that's Gp 5.

That's my vote.
