My brother in law and I are seriously considering getting a super cheap car to convert to a bit of a race car and entering into both the Cheap Car Challenge and the 24hrs of Lemons.
Lemons requires a car that costs < $1000 with all safety gear. Though there is some wiggle room on this.
CCC requires a car less than 2L with no forced induction, has to be 15y old (i think, i dont have the details in front of me).
Both require no engine mods, very basic suspension and brake upgrades and tyres.
We'd love an E36 BMW 318is. Super slow, but good chassis, weight distro and RWD.
We're hoping that we can hire a car trailer for the race weekends and tow behind the X5.
We're very early on in the piece and I'm just hoping for any opinions or stories or suggestions from you guys on anything to do with these races.
