Pinto? Anything you had to do to a Vega you would have to also do to a Pinto bean. It's not "easier to work with".
How about an AMC Pacer, or a Gremlin? How about a tubbed Chevette?
( I wanna see a tubbed Toyota Yaris hatchback! )
To heck with going small and light... let's do up a 1974 Cadillac Eldorado with a Gene Fulton 707 heavy street motor and a air-shifted Lenco!
