Doing Their Part

One of the things I have always loved about racing formula Vees is that you can buy parts right off the shelf. They are just not usually the parts of things you connect with racecars. They may belong on motorcycles, bicycles, dump trucks, spacecraft, wagons, boats, airplanes, washing machines or a plumber’s bench. Nothing is taboo.
On the other hand you usually have to fabricate things from scratch since there are few race car parts made to do what you need done. Either way I love the imagination required recognizing a perfectly good solution to a problem when it is presented "out of uniform".
