What's the deal here... BEGINNING!

Alright, here's the first thought behind this madness: have you ever asked yourself what it would take to stuff an engine in the back of that crappy old hatchback you've been driving? Do you have dreams of powersliding rear wheel drive glory? Well I have, and have had for some time now.

Fast forward to late 2009, and I'm introduced to a magazine called Grassroots Motorsports and the GRM challenge . A few friends discuss this over beer, have a laugh and it pretty much ends there.

Later on, quietly on our own free time, we begin to research this crazy idea. Then pops up the 24 hours of Lemons. There's a good idea, a bunch of friends building and racing a ridiculous, cheap car. Perfect for us poor students/new homeowners...

A few weeks later I find myself seriously considering this.

For inspiration on the whole Lemons thing go here and here.
