A: The Suprang

By on February 26, 2006

Q: What do get when you combine a 1965 Mustang and a 1982 Toyota Supra?

This guy found the answer to a question nobody was asking by building a low-budget autocross racer from two cars that have almost nothing in common. Building required a lot of plasma cutter work, a lot of welding, a lot of pounding, and a lot of patching. The result is a bit remarkable, if only for its uniqueness.

The car was built for one of the autocross competitions sponsored by Grassroots Motorsports. The races, like this year’s $2006 Challenge, so named to indicate both the year and the amount the rules allow racers to spend building their cars. With that in mind, it’s easy to understand some of the methods used to build the Suprang.
