Good luck.
It's not a "full on race car", that would be Kevin's. It is highly prepped for track use but still driveable on the street, which I try to do as often as possible. And, Yes, it does have a passenger seat because my wife needs it for her instructors.

Yup, wife and I had a date night in Baxter on Friday night. I'll drive it around town whenever I can on weekends.

blown9746 Mine is not for sale. I have a solar yellow 06.

Never found a local mechanic, but knock on wood haven't needed one yet.

I believe I’ve meet you once or twice at a C&C. Although the guy I’ve talked to has a for sale sign in it... hope that’s not you! I haven’t been able to find a place that will do any major work, but if you’re ever in need of some help let me know I’m near uptown Charlotte.

Also, where do guys in the area go for service?
