Two 250cc 2-strokes?

I'm guessing it's smaller than it looks.

I doubt that was built to run on the salt but if it was they should have looked into it first. It has no tail so I'm calling it the Gecko. grin

Note that the name "Gerber Tracy" is (faintly) on the rea of the body.

They also have their #1459 F/GL at the show (note the names on the placard on the left):

The car looks nice. I have a problem with the cinder blocks. At least they could have put towels or something over them.

I was wondering about their choice of cement blocks, too.  I mean - did someone go to the cement supply store and sort through the stacks of blocks looking for the perfect set? huh grin
