The FlatCad crew is looking for some good ole' fashioned LSR community support!

We'd sure like you to register and vote for the FlatCad coupe in the Champion Spark Plugs 'Search for a Champion' contest that starts tomorrow.   Lets be honest, we could use the money to help us be the first flathead powered competition coupe to go over 200 at Bonneville.   The world needs more things 'flat' that breathe fire, make noise, scare children, haul butt and compete on the Great White Dyno!

Our Entry:  - you can vote once a day, so do  wink

Dates: January 6th - February 2 . . . if we make it to a Top 15 finalist, we'll be begging for more help.

http://alwaysachampion.com/search-for-a-champion/entry/1568064#.Usltv_RDtuJ

Voting Registration:  Yeah - we know it is a pain to register . . . it is the 'rules'

https://alwaysachampion.com/search-for-a-champion/register/voter

Purpose:  We'd like to show Champion and the entire racing community that a totally cool vintage engine stuffed in what once was Dad's old 'grocery getter' coupe, built by a talented team of average guys . . . who all came together on the SALT - is exactly what they should care about and WANT to sponsor.  And they think all real racing is done on asphalt, dirt, water or snow - we think not!

So hey gang, check it out . . . we appreciate all the support you've given us over the years - Thank You!

The FlatCad Crew

PS:  Pass this URL around, link to it on Facebook - tell your neighbors, call your mother, put a sign on your dog - just get the word out will yah.

It wasn't sideways, Freud.  What we saw in that photo was the engine set up with vertical shaft for a rotary-type lawnmower, I think. grin

The only problem I see with that motor is the blower inlet is probably running at a different density altitude than the rest of the motor  shocked,

Yeah - that and the drive belt was stolen off of a derelict old Pre WWI industrial complex - where it drove all the machine tools via the steam engines in the basement.   It is a big ole' leather piece - with steel 'Frankenstein' stitches in it.  We keep it soft with good ole' baseball glove oil.  Really - I wouldn't lie to yah!  cheers

I'm swamped at work out here in snowy PA., but want to take a minute to ask you all for your vote.

This contest is very important to us, so I'm hoping you'll take a few minutes, register, and vote for us daily.

I don't know about you, but I think it's time for a LSR car to have a Champion sponsorship again!

Thank you for looking! cheers

I read the rules - seems they just love to have as much Champion website traffic as they can get (like everybody else on the WEB).   So . . . 'Yes' - it is Chicago style voting - everybody can vote once a day and that is what they're actually looking for!

Cool by me . . . thanks for the support as always.

Just a quick reminder that we need ALL the support we can get! Please vote everyday, and share the link with all of your friends.

I want to offer a BIG thanks for those folks that have, and that continue to support us!
