A Car Story - sort of.......................................................:-))

What am I looking for in a Motorsport Investor ?


I am crazy enough to be seeking a motorsport investor at 54 years old. I have previous professional motocross (motorcycle) racing experience....but it's been a LONG time. It can be either Vintage (or new car) racing. I have always had the talent, but never the money to back it up.
I can be reached at 480-241-2331 ( Mesa, Arizona USA ).

Fantasies in Fiberglass



When hearing the word "fiberglass", most people think of the Chevrolet Corvette, an iconic American sports car with humble beginnings. When Chevrolet wanted to dip a toe into the sports car pond, it knew the production numbers would be low and took advantage of fiberglass' simple and inexpensive construction technique to create a sporty body to sit on top of Chevrolet sedan underpinnings. A cottage industry of limited production sports cars,… Continue
