Have you looked into getting a car that's already prepped?
Though, there's probably not that many Foci out there to be had.
There's been one in Sports Car Mag for quite some time, but IIRC it's well over $20,000.
I think you're on to something with the flood recovery scenario,
but that'll require a bit of vacation time for you to go down and find one.

So, SVTF engine/tranny isn't legal in this series?
Unless my tax return can get figured out, I'm not doing squat. I figured I'd be getting at least $3,000, but Turbo Tax says $352 combined with my wife... That absoluetly cannot be right though, so I am taking it to a tax pro to do some magic.

If that's the deal, I won't be doing anything till next year at least...
Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...
