    That's funny you did that because I was just wondering the other day how I don't see many people use these (at least here) as track cars. I can only imagine what a riot this thing is considering the cooper S is a blast to drive in stock form.
    It’s an absolute riot, and I haven’t even put either of the sets of stickier tires on yet. Very cheap to run compared to my CTS-V and C5Z as well. Only planning minimal mods as it’s so well set up, add cruise control, engine remap and maybe a mechanical LSD down the road.

    Definitely not something that would be allowed on the road course with our group.

    My guess is it's grandfathered due to its age. It might also be registered as an antique, where:

    “antique motor vehicle” means a motor vehicle that is not used as general transportation, is 25 years old or older, is
    owned as a collector’s item and is driven or operated only in exhibitions, club activities, parades or similar events

    Or, as with most rat-rods, they just got someone to sign off the safety inspection.

    Yet, maybe still safer than a Smart Car.

    I Dont think it's any difference. But they do screen all postings. So you have to get approved before they let you put it up. Then they kind of walk you through the process.

    Expect to wait 4-8 weeks before your listing goes up as well.

    Same could be said about every other BAT comment section.

    "My grandpa's high school girlfriends nephew had one of these cars in 1978, I remember the first time I rode in it. Glided down the highway like nothing I'd ever been in. And when we stopped at the diner for a quick milkshake, they served us the best milkshake I can remember, maybe it was because they noticed the car. What a beaut. GLWA!!!"

    William H Macy, that’s a clean one! I would never take that wheeling; I’d feel so bad.

    I want those Army surplus ones but they’re not cheap anymore

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    back when I was a kid, we called things like that "bumpers". I don't know what cool kids call them now.
