Nifty Dandy Doodle!

A friend of mine just moved out to Seattle, and was taking some pictures of his surroundings.

He ran across this one, and was pretty amazed to see this car in the parking garage...



I can't even tell what it is, From this angle, it looks like a CRX crossed with an MR2, with a Groub B Audi wing, lol!

He, ha ,ha. I helped build that car. Yes it is a Lancia Scorpion. Plus a bunch of other cars. Sort of a long story. Built in 1990. Finished 2nd overall at the 1990 Rocky Mountain national rally, driven by Sam Bryan. I called it the Mock 037. There is more to the story, if anyone is interested I can scan some old pictures and fill you in. I believe I've talked about this here before so maybe do a search.

I just read this thread, so that's where I remember talking about it. And Marc made a recent post and still has the car!

There were some action shots online, think Shawn Bishop had some posted in his Rocky Mtn rally photo achives. I may have some saved somewhere but will have to dig thru floppies.





Here is the 037 style Scorpion I built complete w/ Volumex supercharger.


Here is the Scorpion I converted to European spec Montecarlo. May show it at the Carlisle Import show in PA next Saturday. Mounted some racing compound tires today.



And a scorpion I left stock except for some minor engine mods.

Somewhere I've got some videos of it.

It wasn't all that powerful, just a 2.0 liter on Webers, but it got the job done.

The 1990 Rocky Mtn. Rally was one of the wettest, muddiest events I can remember. Sam Bryan driving the Scorpion caught the Sprongls on the last stage and beat them overall by I think about 5 minutes, though that was their first year in the Audi.

Jeff is in Ala-fing-bama. Bicycles and rose gardens, no cars. Too hot, lousy food...
