Lots of conversation and thought going on about this one. Much like here it ranges from Why..to Lets try it!
Have a friend at the DMV checking to see how it would be handled.
Just building a custom frame is one option that I'm looking at.
Have a 3.8 V6 in it now..may look at using it. Want something fun but dependable, know you can't have it all.
The GM metric cars seem to be the best fit. Monte Carlos, Cutlass, Regals etc.
Wheelbase is the same at 108". Width is closer than anything else.
Looking at C3 and 4s they are about 10" off on width.
The old Monte Carlo SS is the front runner so far for a donor car. Thoughts are that it was set up for the big V8 already.
Appreciate all the input and ideas here..keep em coming as each one adds to the conversation. No telling yet what I'll wind up with. It'll be unique, that's for sure!
