        Well.....  Look at his build codes.  Alot of Pinto's were built in
Brazil along with the engines, right?  Just use a Pinto built in Brazil.
Someone told me this before, and I believe it's correct, but not absolutely
sure.  I think Joe should go to the track with his car and say, "HEY, if you
won't let me race, then flag every single one of those late `80-up Honda
Civics!  They can't race either because the engines were built in Japan, but
the car was built in Indiana!"  Most all late `80-up Honda's are built by
'American' workers, in 'American' factories, in Indiana.  I guess they're
disqualified too.
    Turbo's rules are bullshit.  They are just pissed becuase a Pinto that
costs less than $5k (alot less I think) is smearing those $30k Honda's all
over the track.  BUT, since most of those Honda's are sponsered by Turbo's
advertisers, they're getting a bit "peaved".
                                                Bug Bug

BTW- Just wait till my Pinto is done.  My brother lives in CA and I'll take
a drive out there to smear some "Quick 8" cars myself.
  And no offense Joe, but I'd like to beat you to :)
