hey all,
Murr and Mustard know this car (I'm sure that others do as well)
i have owned it since 1999, lapped, SoloII events and so on
this car has been constantly evolving since 2002 and now is in a state of flux and its time for her to leave me but at this point she cant do it on her own.
for someone that is looking for something that they can say they built themselves this one is the ticket...

for sale is my almost rolling RUST Free 1991 Pontiac Firefly IT/GT Race project car

the good
caged 6 point (1.5"X0.120" wall DOM) with NASCAR Door Bars on the drivers side (WCMA Road Race Specs) (Door cut)
used OMP RS Seat (FIA-1999) with new OMP Seat Mounts sitting on custom bracket welded to frame/body

comes with newish KYB GR-2 riding on Intrax springs and a full set of 1-way adjustable Koni Inserts in proper modified tubes
new Civic Si Front Calipers and Hawk DTC-60 pads with custom slotted and cross drilled Brembo Rotors (from Raceshopper.com) with new stainless brake hoses and Swift GT Front Hubs with new bearings and seals
Home built push button starting box with relays for accessories and others
Taylor master power switch with 4ga leads for battery
adjustable rear toe bars with heim ends
3 point front and rear strut tower bar and 4 point lower front bar built by Liam B. from Armstrong BC.

the bad
car is not street legal, most wiring that's not required for racing has been removed, no working signal lights, no drivers or passenger door glass (available with sale as extra)
working on installing front and rear suspension, need to add a few things from the parts car that is included in the sale.
rear disk brakes from the Suzuki Swift GT parts car are also waiting to be removed from the parts car and installed.
im starting the tear sown and rebuild on a 1.3L DOHC 4cyl engine. i also have a whack of spares (Aluminum (not 7 spokes) and steel wheels, Cams, intakes, wiring, an ECU or two, a Rally chip and socket waiting it be installed and a spare transmission, GT seats (F+R) and a lot more)

not parting out anything as i want all of this gone, pick-up only, bring a trailer...
Pictures of the roll cage are available by email on request, please send me a PM if you would like them.
the car is located 15 minutes west of Stony Plain Alberta Canada

$1450.00 takes everything

front of the car is mostly back together, off to the machine shop this week with the block and head, if i get the engine back together before this sells the price will be going up.

act now if you want to save some cash and build the engine yourself.
spare block (no pistons, rods or crank) and head that both need machining will also be included.

Ice Racing season in Alberta is over and its time to think about cutting out the roll cage and sending this car to be crushed if no one wants it!
if there is any interest in the car i will not give just it away, so respect the work that has gone in to it and the condition its in if you decide to make an offer.
i will not hesitate to destroy it in the next 2 months or so...



i am going to go and sit in the corner now and warm up my "Sawzall" and gas-axe. :shock: :shock: :ez_eek: :ez_sad:
i will post pictures of this destruction as well so all of you can weep about in to your keyboards. :?

you know i'd have a great interest in this car is importation and shipping wasn't 10 times the asking price. :-P

if you cut the car up i will be weeping. :cry:

non streetable cars do not need inspections to cross the border, if it stays on the track and its trailered everywhere then its okay. it enters under the salvage title rules and is never to be registered.

You are right on that. I was at the Tx2k event this sunday. and talking to the rotary powered Datsun 1200 owner about the car he mentioned that he imported his car as a race car and came in a container to miami.

so before i send the car to the wrecker to be crushed i figure that this is worth it.

changed my mind about the pricing for the roller
$750 for the roller as it sits with the new front brakes installed on rebuilt front hubs and the 4 Adjustable Koni's. the stainless steel brake hoses, rotors, calipers and rebuild hubs are worth almost this much... new you'd pay about $1000 for koni's alone.

willing to part out lose parts:
used OMP RS seat (FIA HOMO built 1999) - SOLD[/b]
OMP FIA Seat Mounts SOLD[/b]
CROW brand HANS compatible (SFI 16.1 built 2010) 5 Point CAM LOCK Harness (Black), still have box, installed but car has not moved... SOLD

NEW I/O Port SFI Window Net 50 dollars (has adjustable strappy bits at the bottom so fitment range is wide)
http://www.ioportracing.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=IONet&Category_Code=WN

Window net install kit, 15 dollars (buckle style not latch) - a couple little parts are missing (weld in tabs)

spare engine bits available

stock intake bored to match with SR20 TB and TPS $120 (not a Cultus intake)
ITB set up for the Swift GT head $100
Bare block $125
head with valves and lifters (assembled) $150

other bits available as well, hit me up and i'll see what i got.
(will ship small bits in small boxes at buyers expense, within North Ameraica only)

Would you take 500 for the rolling shell? Don't need any fancy race bits.
