The original plan was to add a turbo to the NTC Arrow, but that idea was scrapped when a considerable amount of metal shavings were found in the oil pan of the donor engine. So, another donor vehicle was located. Stay tuned for a post detailing the engine and trans swap. Today’s installment will concentrate on just the tail lights.
Hit it for more.

When last we left our group of idiotic racing enthusiasts, they had just taken a dull sawzall blade to a rusty MR2…
It’s at this point of a project that many ambitious and enterprising folks take a step back, assess the situation, and realize they this thing will never run and that they were morons to take even a single step down this insane path. Our team is certainly not that smart, so onward we go.
Ok, I promise, this will be the last midget post for at least a week or two.
In August of 2012, a group of friends and I attended Speed Week at the Bonneville Salt Flats. That group had hooked up with accomplished pin-up photographer Mitzi, who took some great shots some of our pin-up gals with our cars. The results were fantastic. The folks at Car Kulture Deluxe must have thought so too, as they picked up a couple of the shots for their spread about Speed Week.
That’s right folks, the NTC midget has been awarded the most prestigious award in the automotive world. Thanks to everyone out there who helped and/or followed along.
(Note: No thanks to the guy at Peach Days who asked why I didn’t put legitimate parts in it. That guy can stick it.)

The guys over at Stick Figure Racing built one of the coolest Lemons cars of all time – The MRolla, which is the back half of a Toyota MR2 and the front half of a Toyota Corolla. It’s mid-engined, it’s front engined, it’s rear wheel drive, it’s front wheel drive, it’s an automatic trans, it’s a manual trans… In short, it’s everything I ever wanted in a car.
So what do you do if you have the only twin-engined, AWD car at the track? You build another one so it doesn’t get lonely.
What do you do when winter comes, the roads get ugly, and traffic turns sketchy? Why you break out the one vehicle that is most suited for the job. A classic Mini Countryman? Lolwut?
Screw road salt and inclement conditions, let’s motor!

At this time, it is basically a two horse race between the midget and the Unimog. The Unimog is getting a ton of support from the Mercedes Benz message board crowd but the midget is holding its own.
