Plenty of Online Sources to Check for Great Deals
You won’t have to look far to hit pay dirt with the classifieds. But unlike the auto classifieds from newspapers, the online versions come with plenty of color photos.
- For those who have the money, a 2006 Bailey chassis with a 05-06 GSXR 1000 engine is advertised for $11,000. The chassis has all the updates and this car was powder coated just last winter.

- For slightly less, a 2006 PMP mini Sprint Car, ready to race, is being sold for $8,500. This car has a fuel forward seven-gallon bladder tank and was only raced twice in 2011. It needs some work, and the seller is willing to negotiate and will accept a best offer from interested buyers.

Individual Parts Also Available Through the Classifieds
The way Sprint Cars are built has remained basically the same over the years.

Sprint Car fans who are do-it-yourself mechanics handy with a wrench can undertake the project of their dreams.
Surf the Web to Find Just the Right Part
More than one website sells a number of auto components including bodies, accessories, brake systems, exhaust systems, tires, wheels, engines, seats and steering systems. Some are organized with a buyer’s guide listing company names and phone numbers, where clicking on the name of an individual company in the buyer’s guide brings up details for that particular dealer.
