My 1999 Swift....it's not a Suzuki folks

So I wanted to buy something different that you don't hear about or see very often. I was looking hard at 348/F355 Challenge cars and other factory modified exotics and I ended up with something I never even THOUGHT I'd own....at anytime in my life.



Well here is what I have tucked away in my garage now.



It's a 1999 Swift 010c, 1 of 15 built (not sure how many are left). This is chassis number 004 It was originally used by Newmann Haas and then by Rocketsports. It's last duty was a promotional piece for the '07 Las Vegas GP and the never fulfilled Arizona GP. Now it's sitting in my garage waiting for major surgery to implant a VG for some reliable go power. I will post updates as they happen.







Future Cahmpionship driver?


Baby Onboard!

It came with a trailer!




The air jacks are all there and seem to function.

The list of To-Do's is quite large but I feel it will be well worth it in the end. The plan as of now is to run a single turbo VG with either an EMS or Zem. The biggest hurdles will be finding a clutch/fabricating a flywheel and getting a VG to rev high enough to attain a respectable top speed. The dry sump will also be a good chunk of time/$$$. The smaller jobs will be fitting shocks and brake calipers and completeing the clutch and brake pedal assemblies. A set of belts needs to be fitted (the mounts are already there) along with a seat pad.
