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.

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. Buck 67 SB-parts are coming in daily!
