    or 7MGTE into a crown/cressida. can do it with stock toyo parts bin shit and 7M's are almost throwaways these days.
    I doubt a roadworthy-ish MA70 or a gemini or a manual r31 can be had for $1300. I'd probably try with a vl or ea, ebay turbo and an extra injector or two.

    You can find Eleventy Billion 1970's V8 Mercs for under $500. Or barter them down to that at least.

    My old 450SEL that I used as my first track car was $300. And that lasted me 2years of red-lining with no engine work other than service.. and it never died.

    Wet fogger kit plus V8 benz = 13's maybe?

    This would be a cool cheap challenge that lots of people could participate in. Have a 2 month track date deadline, make the budget $1300 including the price of the car running, allow some additional coin for RWC and RWC items.

    Each competitor keeps a log of costings, most people should have an idea of realistic costs for things etc, all parts used should be aquired ie no use of parts already lying around. Make the initial vehicle purchase and cost public but keep the build up a secret until a few days prior to event. Reveal build logs to verify everyone is happy the car was built within the budget.

    Quickest keeps all the cars (haha maybe not but would make sure the budgets are kept)

    There is also a few earlyish model 4 cyl 2wd utes that might have potential, some 2.6 and 2.4 efi models, tray / tub removal makes it easy to lighten and get more rubber under the back too, commercial drivelines should be up to the job aswell. Not sure on weights though.

    VB commodore + VR v6 drivetrain + gutted + low gears should be there or thereabouts without gas
    Make Land Rover great again

    Something like this?? http://www.24hoursoflemons.com/

    Most would need at least 6 months to get ready though. And I reckon an additional rule of no rules regarding contact would be good.

    ALso... no need to. I know a workshop owner in Capitown with a pretty sweet 450SEL that could be got for less than $500. Engine runs fucking ace. And interiors schmick - so you could sell that for $500 which = budget for car is still $1300?? Isn't that how it works??

    Only downside is, it's on LPG....

    If you can get a VR for $100, Gemini would be better it starts off 200kg lighter than a Sigma

    I was only in if it was a drive to the track with rego type thing.
    I cant see how you can get any v6 converted small light car ready for rego at $1300

    I've been wondering what a very gutted vr (bunnings spec plastic windows gutted doors, no dash etc )with 4.1:1 gears would do.

    I don't think rego should be needed, adds too much to the cost and restricts what you can do on mods. I can't see most of the cars mentioned making it from my place to the drag strip without being defected.

    It'd have to be registered before you started, no way anything built for $1300 would get registered..

    If there is a bit of a lead-in to source the right car, I think I'm in on this.

    12s for $2000 would be harder/easier/better imho though.
    Lowest ET wins (even if we all end up running 13s)

    So i was planning a road car, not necessarily road legal but registered. Driving a $1300 shit heap into the drags and racing it is ok, trailering one in.....nah.

    usually comes down to never being able to find stuff for silly cheap prices when you actually need it.
