thinking about doing a ground up frame and use a Pantera transaxle, engine undetermined. This is going to be an insane project but I want something that no one else has and will perform.
Going to start drawing some plans up soon. Any thoughts?
I love the thought, I built a mid engine 48 Chevy pickup years ago, I did the mid engine idea.
There have been a few Vega mid engine cars, one was a popular wheel stander as I remember.
Here are a few.
This one has a 500 inch Cad, I LOVE it!

I remember one that had the transaxle moved back changing the wheelbase and moving the wheels closer to the rear end, I thought it looked cool.
