    After 3 year sitting outside in MN, the 1996 265,000 mile Racescort fired up with 3 turns if the crankshaft.
    All the tires held air, the tranny shifted in reverse AND forward, the brakes are rusty but still stopped the car.
    Drove it a mile back to my house.
    Now I need to clean the leaves and CRAP out of it, put a roll cage in it and stuff my 20 year old son it and go roundy round.
    3 years ago I had my older son in it when he ran a Flag race, came in all smiles and said "That's better then a video game!"|
    No shit Sherlock!
    Still need more power-it is embarrassing with only 88 HP.
