Terrific! There are lots of other ways you can help. We need lots of folks to help with non-technical tasks. There are designs to draft, seat cushions and safety harnesses to sew, hundreds of tasks and people to organize, and lots and lots of legwork. During each of the build events, we will teach you how to do each of the tasks required to build these cars. Please join us if you are a:
- Project manager
- Or, just willing to lend a hand!
There are so many fun events scheduled for this year. Click here to learn more.
