Talking Anyone else in OR or WA considering the Gambler 500??

If you don't know what it is here is a quick summary:

Take a $500 or less car and run it through the backroads of Oregon (or Washington) in a GPS based navigational rally. (Its NOT a race)

Youtube video about it


I plan to run my $1 lifted Impreza assuming that I can get it the way I want it by then. My car will be a little overbuilt, but the basic platform is a $1 car + $170 transmission service/repair + $200 Outback parts car. I'm not counting the skid plate, roof rack, off road lighting and stuff in the total. The rules allow you to mod the car so I am fully within the totally relaxed rules.

That looks like a stupid amount of fun.
Just need to find a cheap AWD subaru around here, shouldn't be too tough, right?

and even the $500 thing doesn't look like it's an actual rule, I think the only rule is to have fun and go bonkers for a couple days:

Vehicles can cheap, cool or impractical (there is no $500 limit).

Ya pretty much show up with a beater and you are fine. My car was $1 but is having more than $1000 thrown at it.
