It has been a long time since we updated you on the Park Bench Racing Lada 24 Hours of Lemons racer. Life, jobs, family, all that stuff has been getting in the way… until now.
Recently the Lada made a trip from Ciro’s Auto Body to the same shithole shed where our amazing Buick has been built, and to the same master craftsman that built it. It runs, the chassis is straight, and its body is free of political stickers. We also picked up a used fire suppression system, because safety third. We have a tentative plan for the cooling system, lexan windshield, and brakes. The cage needs an update and it could use some new wheels and tires.
Big update on the whole thing is coming soon. In the mean time, if anyone has a set of 15″ Fiat 500 wheels for sale, please contact us – tipsAThooniverseDOTcom. We’re looking for sponsors, too. The damn project is already costing me more than I want to admit to.
