Hi everyone, my father passed away last year and now I have too many race cars. A few have to go and this one’s one of them. My 1995 Honda Prelude underwent a full restoration from a former ChumpCar to a dual use SCCA STU/ EP car over the last three years. It was primarily designed to be a fast, competitive car for a father/son team to share during a single weekend. We had built a STU prepped H22A4, which blew up in 2020, so the car has its stock ChumpCar spec JDM H22A. It has an out of date SCCA Logbook, but we do have some paperwork left over from its Chump days. The car will need some setup work, brake maintenance & a timing light check before it’s put on track again, as well as a transponder. I do also have all of the needed parts to convert it back to a ChampCar, including it’s old shocks/struts, headlights, a steel hood, etc. For some of the originals here in ChampCar, the car used to compete under the MoneyShot Motorsports banner. It’s last Chump race was in 2014 at Sebring, and with me driving set the 3rd fastest time overall. The only issues we ever suffered from were broken axles, which was cured with a set of racing axles. If it matters, the car also has a Top-10 finish in a SCCA Runoffs, and was also co-driven by Randy Pobst in 2016 during a Sebring Enduro with SCCA. Below is a picture of the car during the time we’ve owned it, I’ll share the detailed listing in a comment to this along with some more detailed pictures.
I am looking to get in touch with owners/drivers of Car 38, Honda Prelude. I would like your feedback and overall impression of the Honda. As well, any tips/suggestions for this car. I have a 3rd Gen Prelude. It has been sitting for several years, all pieces are there but motor is over there, transmission is over here, well you get the idea. Anyway, I would like to "talk" to you about your Chumpcar. Thanks, Tom Phillips
