    ok, so we've all seen these rally's.... hell, we WERE planning on having one too, but it got pushed....

    but anyway, the good ol' boys at grassroots motorsports have come up with the greatest idea ever.


    Rally from nyc to New orleans.... but there's a catch. your vehicle must be under $250. lol


    Here is the BA2BE rally website:

    lol, that's awesome...Micah, let me buy your Del Sol for 250.00. Whose to say I don't buy a 30,000.00 dollar car and have the person I buy it from write it up as 250.00 to avoid paying taxes?

    the point is not to win... its about having a blast trying to fix your hunk of shit repeatedly on the side of the road and eventually making it down there :mrgreen:

    $250 is too cheap. I would say $500.

    I would also say $500 so I could take my NX2000.

    Wait.. I have a Civic hatch with no heat that I got for $200

    So far I've driven it from Southboro MA, to Providence
    Providence to Foxboro, MA
    Foxboro, back to Providence
    and last weekend I went from Providence up to Sandborton, NH and put it in storage :cry2:

    a guy on the list i orig. heard it from picked up an 82 conversion van with a rebuilt 305 in it :p its got a frige, woody paneling, and a decent motor.

    thats what grm is all about-- racing for cheap :)

    someday, i'll build a $2006 or whatever yaer dollar car and take it down. its something i've wanted to do for a long time.

    the 2006 challenge definately interests me. I wanna do that with a Supra, but the NX may be up for that challenge. that's much easier to compete in than the $250 one.

    Conversion vans are what mostly win the Cannonballs.

    I saw a Buick on the side of the road for $299, real hunk of shit. I think I could talk them down to $250. :mrgreen:

    hmm I have about 100 bucks into my civic, but they probably wouldn't believe that I have 225 into the car including purchase, a few parts, and registration.

    The Neon currently on the operating table here is a $15,000 invested 96 4 door.

    Doesn't quite qualify.
