<<  I want to be able to beat all those rice-rockets
 and suped-up Mustangs, Cameros(sp?), Firebirds, and cars of that
 nature.  I realize that it's impossible to beat all of them or leave
 them that far behind in the dust, but I at least want to give them a run
 for their money.  I want to be able to pull up next to a Mustang or a
 rice-rocket, glance over, rev my engine, and watch them laugh at me. 
 Then, when the light turns green, I want to burn rubber and leave them
 way the hell back in my dust, then look back in my mirror and see the
 look of disbelievment (is that a word) on their face.  That's what I
 honestly want.  Now, if any of you have some suggestions or ideas,
 anything would be appreciated.

Leland, one of the pleasures of moving often, is reviewing the many boxes of
magazines that I have.  Just yesterday I was thumbing through a June 1974 Hot
Rod mag and I found an articile...V8 VW!  There might be your answer!  It was
a VW body (bug in this case), a Corvair drivetrain, and a small block Chevy.
Kelmark Engineering (in Okemos, Michigan) were the guys that put together the
project.  In the article there is a price list of Kelmark adapter kits, so I
don't believe that this is a one off thing.  There is no phone number and the
kit included a "mild-steel chassis" to go under the car, and ended up being a
mid-engine, two seater.
      Just another option.
