I first saw this car with a Hayabusa motor with nitrous at Super Slalom in Saskatoon. Looked absolutely crazy fun!

That was a Honda fireblade 900 ('ish?) cc engine Corey, yes, with nitrous, and also yes, very entertaining.

It's a homebuilt chassis that Gord did a run of (I think) 6 cars. It was stolen in ~2004 or so, and Gord got it back (long story in it's own right) a few months before he passed away. 

The engine is still there, albeit sawzalled out of the chassis (they cut the steering wheel off, instead of using the quick release, so you can imagine the sort of folks involved). Mostly intact, but will need quite a bit of TLC. 

No cage, so putting it on the track will require some additional work. I'm not sure what it would take to put it on the road, or if it's even possible.

I don't really know the car very well (it was gone a long time, and only around for a couple of years when I first knew Gord), but I can try to answer any questions.

We can mark this as sold... for now... safely tucked away in the trailer.

Maybe it gets put back up after the zx10, flatshifter, nitrous, some carbon fibre, new wings, a bunch of hours, and (at least) one hilarious autocross outing.

I look forward to seeing if I can make it as ridiculous as Gord would have.
