    Default Jim Hall will be on-site for the Live Drive of the Chaparral 2J on Oct. 18th, 2018


    ONE WEEK FROM TODAY -
    Jim Hall will be on-site for the
    Live Drive of the 2J

    "The result of all this complexity was constant downforce—
    at any speed, through any corner. Theoretically, the 2J could generate up to 2200 pounds of downforce. Fully fueled, the 2J could pull from 1.25 to 1.5gs through turns."
    -Road & Track Magazine
    Get your motor running…
    The Chaparral 2J will be driven, weather permitting, Thursday, October 18, 2018 at approximately 6:00 p.m. at the Petroleum Museum. The Chaparral 2J will run for approximately 10-20 minutes in the front circle. The running of the Chaparrals is part of the routine maintenance to keep the cars in running condition.

    Please enter through the Visitor Center entrance which is east of the Museum’s entrance. (The Museum entrance will be closed.) You are welcome to come early and walk back to the garage to see the 2J getting prepped for the drive.

    If you know someone who would like to receive these emails, feel free to forward or send Luanne their email address at​​​​​​​ [email protected].

    If you have any questions, call the Museum at 432-683-4403.

    This would be cool and I would head out there if I did not have to work.

    I've been to the museum (wife is from Odessa, so out that way often), and I recommend checking it out if you're out that way. When I was there the 2J was fully taken apart in the workshop inside the museum.

    Mrs. cone-cerned and I helped push the 2J from the workshop to the showroom floor. It has just been rebuilt after the Goodwood crash. We have kinfolks in Odessa also, but rarely go out that way. I already have obligations for that day, or I would be trying to talk the Mrs. into a trip to her sestra's for the weekend.
