Too bad your so far away...  My friends and I have the perfect car for you to
play Dr. Frankenstein with :-)  we bought it for $300 canadian... it is a 1986
Subaru XT AWD Turbo........  it onl±+ă5hp though......   but imagine the
possibilities :-)   .... oh yeah it also has air adjustable ride height control
from the driver seat :-)  wouldn't that make a neat conversion with a type
3...........
