Local guy (autocrosser/track day) selling his track toy. Looks like it would be a good start to an EP or GTL build.

No log book, but it should be easy to get, as long as the cage was done properly.

Knowing who built it I'm sure its overdone.

Rear down bars will have to be cut out and re done. They copied the retarded NHRA rear down bars. Apparently Blackbird doesn't understand proper cage fabrication techniques.

Hate commenting on a picture but not sure drivers side down bar is compliant.

Would really need to see it. Someone might need to take a tech inspector with them before buying. Cutting a cage apart is a pain.

OK, I gotta ask. What seems to be the problem with the down bars? I am assuming you are referring to the rear bars...

Nice looking car but yes the rear bars and the main hoop support bar need to be redone. Not a huge deal actually. The rest of the car looks really nice.

Surprised to see he would do it wrong considering his pro racing background.
