Maybe while they are working on culling the SM cars they will retire the MGs, Sprites, Healeys and all the other junk that has been grandfathered for the last fifty years. Although I dont like the idea of my 1990 SM going to the barn, I agree that overall it is better for the sport to keep curent with the times.

Sorry for all the edits and changing of the posts.. All is the spirit of the joke :)


I didn't even notice that you edited my post!


I'm taking my 1.6 and going back to the middle of the pack!

Black SM/SM2/"Slap Bracelet Throwback" #12 in the Northeast....if the car was made in the early 90's it should look like it.

1.6L forever!  Bring on your '99's and '01's!

Told my friend about the 1.6 changes (plus added it was no longer elgible for SSM and it now needs to run in ITA). She was so pissed off and said she's isn't going to renew her SCCA license, swore a few times, and thanked you guys for saving her a ton of money. LOL


Great joke, had me initially too. :)

Well done, Jim and Mike. Even better than the fake news story on Facebook about Formula 1 coming to Lime Rock Park.
