Here's my `85 Merkur XR4Ti that I run with NASA Mid Atlantic, HPDE 3:

It has not been out much the past two years but I plan on running nearly every event this year if the car holds up!

 

Great Xr4ti! Love the Cosworth hood and wing!! I had one in 1990 and I thought it was the coolest.

First post here on the NASA forums. I hope to do as many HPDE events as I can this year once I get back from Afghanistan in June(been here since March 08). Here are some pictures of my car when I was home on leave for two weeks:

we see one of those here in the SE from time to time, one of the drivers is wicked fast in it. I don't know what was under the hood, but it was really quick.

 

If it is a maroon car, it's Cliff Walton and he has a built 302 under the hood. He his a good driver too, fast!

 

(Most of us XR guys know one another, it's a small community)

is that what those cars have in them, I can't remember if the one I see is a boosted car or not, I seem to remember it being an NA V8. Could be wrong. I will have to look next time I see it. It is usually passing me at a high rate of speed.

 

Yep. Stock was a 2.3 Turbo. A V8 swap is pretty easy though, so some guys run that configuration.

I would imagine you do know each other, not a common car. and yes, he was wheeling that thing really well. It sounded great as he went by me a few times. Definitely a surprise to see one when I do.

I dig seeing a "collector" car like the S351 out there getting the snot beat out of it, instead of dying a slow death under fluorescent lights in a climate controlled warehouse!

Here's my 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata. Her name is Mia, and she's my daily driver. I took her to several HPDE and autocross events last year. Now that I'm hooked, I'm looking for an NA Miata to turn into a dedicated track toy.

 

Under heavy breaking going into Turn 5 at Summit Point Main. Note the huge wheel gap in the back.

On the front straight at Thunderbolt Raceway. This is my favorite photo of the car.

In Turn 5 at Thunderbolt Raceway. You can see the small stock intercooler in this photo. I have a much larger intercooler installed now.
