I could never fit in that car, but it would sure make someone a nice ride.

I wonder what the reserve is?  A friend of mine does not have computer access (he is old school) he seemed a bit interested when I told him about this.

A busa engine would be great or go the other way and run a flat head V8 or go nuts with a turbine engine from a helicopter that thing looks like fun.
Thank you to all the volunteers

     3737 ran Sept '05 and first meet of '06 at Maxton, '06 Speedweek, and '07 WF. 

     Believe motor used [not in car now] wasn't nearly as developed as those others listed.  On a MPH per $ comparison , motor probably did quite well.

Minor dyslexia on the gas / fuel thing there Dean, but the point was made well...
