I rekon an outboard motor repower would be the shit. Wack in a 250hp 3L v8 2-stroke. Mate it up to some meaty FWD box and it should go nuts, reverse and all, and you'd still get that 2-stoke smell/sound. Dreams are free. The humble 360 will be plant of choice for the time being. They do rev hard and sound wicked. Although, they dont like hills

Filthy ad for a filthy car. Should be on the road in the not to distant future, although restorations always take longer than expected. It was meant to be done by 20th jan. But shit happens

You got that right! - funny wee things, never liked the look of them but it must be pretty fun/weird to drive

They are a hoot to drive. Its all about conservation of momentum. You have to think about whats ahead all the time. Keep it in the powerband. Bout 6500rpm. If you know there is a bit of a hill coming up you gotta go nuts through the corner or else you drop out of the powerband and have to drop down a gear. 1st >15, 2nd > 40, 3rd > 70, 4th>115 (speeds when its in powerband)
When i say hill i mean any slight incline. Ther ups and downs of the wellington motorway give +-10kph. and most roads in wellington its 1st or seccond. Having ppl in the car makes a huge difference aswell. If its just me its about the same performance as my mates starlet. A passenger, (or shopping for that matter) is the difference between 3rd or seccond up some inclines. 4 ppl its 1st all the way. boosting at a steady 15kph @ 7000rpm yeyay. Pretty peppy on the flats tho
