Default Free race car!

Some assembly required

Seriously, we have a 2004 MSM shell that we're giving away. It's fully stripped, the only things on it are a windshield and some hard lines. Perfect for starting a race car build. The fact that it's a MSM VIN means it came with factory forced induction - that might be worth something in NASA classing. It also means it has the reinforced chassis parts that showed up in 2001, such as bigger gussets front and rear and different sheetmetal gauge in the rear bulkhead.

Slight damage on the LF. Easy to fix with a frame machine, it's all ahead of the front subframe mounting points. No title, just a certificate of salvage.

As is, where is. If we can't give it away, we'll crush it because we don't need it and it's getting in the way.

Email [email protected] if you want it.

I have to ask: what kind of power does the dyno tap out at?

Sheesh. At least when I give away a Miata, I have the decency to include a drivetrain with it.

450-ish.

Joe, sorry. But we're not going to pay anyone to take it away!

We're not trying to get rid of the airplane. So it's no surprise that it's still here. Actually, if you know what you're looking at, you can see it in one of these pictures.

haha it popped into my head too. I don't think I'd trust my old steed ('97 F150) to travel that far without a small support group with it.

And it's gone! Goodbye, Mazdaspeed.

No, sorry, I don't know what's going to happen to it. A local is picking it up, so we may see it again.

Hmmm. I really thought I knew where to look for it, in the first image with the dyno room in the background. But I'll be damned if I can find it. One thing is certain- it's definitely moved since the last time I was out there.

No kidding. I've been there, and it's an astoundingly large (and well organized) space. You could hold a small AutoX event inside that shop.

My '91 F150 does the RT from Seattle to Laguna every spring and there are 3 major mountain passes in the way that add up to a trip to Colorado.
