    Back in the 70's I ran autocross one day at the Salinas Airport in my four-speed '65 bracket racer. A bystander told me I needed wider front tires, being the fact he observed the 15 inch VW beetle tires were in one place, while the rims were in another place on the turns. I came in last place and never returned.

      This is my friends car in progress of building it. It will not be dedicated auto crosser, but it will be highly capable handler as well as a quick car. It has a "warmed up 340" & a Tremec 5 speed trans. It will also be street legal too.
