( 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!

You're right- the difference is that its a LOT easier and cheaper to do it with a Pinto. You can get everything you would need out of a junk yard or catalog, and at great prices. I was astounded at the support for the Pinto- mostly because of good parts interchangability and its presence in circle track.
