Appears to be inspired by Top Gear.  What could possibly go wrong?

This car was pretty amazing to watch in person. It's for sale for a great price. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a little tempting...

This is a PERFECT example of why workers on course need to pay attention and why photogs need spotters...

Afraid not:
7. Engine and Drivetrain
a. Engines must be derived from production automobiles. Motorcycle,
snowmobile, marine, or other engines of non-automobile design are
not permitted.   :(

Not even for DM:
1. Engines must be derived from production automobiles available in
the US or elsewhere.   :'(

Very cool though - there has been a shell of one of these rusting away in the local junkyard for years now - I've daydreamed many times about a similar build.

Ktm xbow used a bike style engine I believe. So it's a production based engine in that platform.

Nope.  The KTM Xbow actually uses the same 2.0L turbocharged inline 4 you will find under the hood of various Volkswagens and Audis.

The 66 - 67 Plymouth Belvedere is one of my favorite cars for it's clean crisp lines and double angle rear roof pillar.   The double angle roof makes me think of the Chrysler " Forward Look " emblem from the mid 50's 

A few years ago I came across the car below in Hot Rod magazine.  It's a very clean, subtle build that is easy to pass up when shuffling through the pages.  The wheels caught my attention as they look like steel but are larger than the factory 15".  Turns out they are aluminum made to look like steel.

Turns out the owner ,  Dave Meyer , is local to the Pittsburgh area.  While Dave didn't build the car, he did very carefully spec out what the car should look like and do.  It's a wonderful build in the face of over done show cars and rat rods.  Also I could not picture this car in any other color than the blue metallic.  Years ago I had a 2 door V8 1973 Plymouth Scamp ( Dodge Dart ) finished in a very similarly looking True Blue Poly. 

Really great road test    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDTmhH6HVGM

Scott Tucker is def one of the most controversial figures in SCCA history.  Not the first guy to use questionable ethics to fund his racing efforts, though.  Bill and Don Whittington, Randy Lanier, John Paul Sr. and John Paul Jr. were all part of a cocaine smuggling ring to fund their IMSA teams in the 80s.  I think the one dude is still a wanted fugitive.

Quote
Scott Tucker (born May 5, 1962 in Kansas City, Missouri) is an American convicted racketeer, former businessman and racing driver.  In 2001, Tucker founded an illegal online business, AMG Services, that made payday loans even in states where these high-interest, low-principal loans were restricted or illegal. . . .

 Tucker was convicted of making illegal payday loans and of racketeering in October 2017; he is currently serving a sentence of 16 years and 8 months in federal prison. . . . .

The story of Tucker's fall from grace is chronicled in the second episode of the Netflix series Dirty Money entitled "Payday"

Brake failure at 140+ at Shenandoah circuit Sunday morning.  Luckily I was able to aim for one of the few places that had pillows or safer barriers or whatever.   ;D
