    Primo insane project with this car – power for an old Porsche. Preferably a shabby one (do they still have those?) It's been done – by the service manager for a P-car dealership Somewhere in Los Angeles. Written up in that old illustrated motor swap book we've all read and can't find any more. He built a stealth engine cover out of hardshell suitcases from the Goodwill – these days those would probably be harder to find than any of the other bits needed. See you at the stoplight.

      That's a pretty common swap for Corvairs and it keeps the engine and chassis in the same family without having to spend mega bucks for the Porsche cover.

      You know, you're right. Olds-powered Corvairs are common as dirt. Silly me! 🙂 I guess the only advantage of the Porsche is that you can piss almost everybody off with it.

    Oh, the humanity! Oh, those poor tires, howling like a Japanese bondage-fetish starlet at the mere sight of a corner!

    FWD has its advantages in packaging but in no vehicle is that less appropriate and less useful than a 4300lb 'personal luxury' tank.

    Though I have to admit these were fairly attractive, an DC the first FWD Eldorado even more so.
