Believe me, I've thougt about other cars. I just don't care much about them. But I really am digging this idea, practicality be damned. And I can wait to get to it, so no biggie. Just lots of planning...it's not really something I should just cut and see how it goes if I'm looking to stay close to stock(ish) looking. Not really into the whole giant cowl look and all, lol.

Well good luck man! Post on this thread when you get going with it cause i'd definitely love to watch the build!
Btw. Use a bmw rear end from an e36 or e46. It will be perfect for this! And they have awesome ratios from the factory.

Down here in Australia a friend of mine decided to build himself a two -wheeled drag bike. He threw out the 4 cylinder jap engine and cut the frame and stretched it long enough to fit a 4.2 litre GM v8 into it.. No one believed him at work and thought he was full of s--t until he turned up one day in the work car park with this beast sitting up in a trailer. He was then taken very seriously from then on. He made it happen. He now has a prosthetic lower leg. .
In other words , goodluck, factor of safety deserves a lot of time when you are planning the build. 4 wheels are safer than 2
