Because I obviously don't have enough to do, let's take on more projects! :)
1996 Mazda Miata, 242k (yes you read that right), "needs a water pump".....well yes it did have a 1/2 inch of play on the pulley. I did a timing belt kit.
2001 VW Jetta GLX, 12v VR6, leather seats, automagic. "Needs an radiator", has a check engine light, and lord knows what else.
7/31/16 Update...Miata runs! Water pump, t-stat, radiator, timing belt, and a bunch of degreasing. I was lazy and didn't do cam & crank seals, or lifters. She is a bit clicky, after two heat cycles it sounded better. After sitting in a two year coma, and having really black oil, it isn't all bad; we will see after some fresh fluids.
Volunteers are still needed in all specialties for the 2016 Ojibwe Forests Rally on August 26 & 27, just one month away! We already have 38 registered competitors, it’s going to be a great event. Online registration is now open at http://www.rallymasterpro.com/workers/?group=1 Early registration will be on Thursday the 25th from 6 to 9 pm at the Pavilion, and Friday registration is from 9-12 at the same place. We’ll have a brief worker meeting at 1:00 and first time volunteer training at 1:30 before leaving for the woods. Be sure to bring food and water for the day, and bring extra insect repellant. Bring a friend too, no experience necessary, so bring someone and introduce them to rally! Thanks in advance for your help. Jonathan Atkins Chief of Controls 2016 Ojibwe Forests Rally

MORE VIDEOS AND PICTURES TO COME!
First race...video from Patrick Price's Nissan 200sx...we have a great joust. He had a better qualifying time than I and started ahead of me. I get him on the opening lap, he chases me down for next six laps. He finally gets by me, and I stay on him through all the twisty bits. I finished 3rd in this race.
The same race from my car:
