I've built a few VW engines for aircraft, but a friend used to have a few old bugs that would wheelie and were *very* quick. I've got access to a couple late 60s rollers (a few run too) so I was wondering what to expect if I decide to dump some time and money into one. It would remain ugly...emphasis on building a drive train that would propel the car to unsafe speeds (ya, I know...unsafe at many speeds) I've got a couple friends with Caymans and the like who I'd like to wipe the smug off their face with some fugly, 50 yr old piece. So...how much should I expect to spend? I see 2900cc drop ins for $4K...what about the tranny? Suspension? Brakes? Anyone?
