Someone brought up in another thread about a CTS build so I figured I would share. Just to get a few things out of the way, I know this car is heavy, I know it start out at 530 points, I know it don't have many options as far as shocks go, I know it's an odd ball build. Why did I do this? It's not a BMW #1, and it's what I know #2. I've worked for a Cadillac dealer for 15 years and have been managing the service department for the last 3. I rented a seat in Thing 3PO with Justin Lee and Thing 3 Racing last year and I've been hooked ever since. I sold my 2014 Camaro SS 1LE and bought a rusted out 2003 Cadillac CTS off of Craigslist for $850 and a new car trailer. I've been working on this car for just under a year now and for having rotator cuff surgery in November I feel like I've gotten a lot done.

Let me start by introducing myself: My name is Brian, but I am more commonly known among my friends and co-workers as Scribe. I have been lurking around these forums for about two years now, but never felt the unrelenting urge to post much. Some of you may have met me (although I probably did not introduce myself) at various races in the Eastern and Central regions. I have been crewing and occasionally driving for @Hi_Im_Will's GWR team since the Chumpcar race at Gingerman in 2015. Some might say I'm the mastermind behind the race strategy that got GWR on the podium at the Eastern Region Chumpionship last year. Others might say that I'm just the guy who hangs out in GWR's pit that stares at Race Monitor too much. Either way, I'm a big fan of Chumpcar and I have decided to start my own team and build my own car. Understanding how much work (and money) it takes to build a competitive Chumpcar, I've enlisted the help of one of my friends from college who just so happens to live about a mile away from me. Together we formed ScribeWorks Motorsport and began looking for the car we wanted to build. We decided to build something a little more obscure than GWR's tried and true E30. I could just tell you what we are building, but I'd rather see if you guys can guess it. Here is your hint: Good luck! P.S. @Hi_Im_Will and @Jamie, don't spoil it!
