Re: Build your own car from SCRATCH?!

As a small update I have been driving the car regularly to work and really just for fun and I am averaging 45mpg. It seems that the light weight and small slippery shape of the car combined with a the efficient Toyota 20 valve Blacktop engine are a great combination.

Plus the car SOUNDS great! I'm sure there are lots of great engines to power a 1,500lb car, but the Quad Throttle Bodies of the 20v and velocity stacks make it sound like music. I made a youtube video of me driving the car WOT to redline a bunch of times. You really should turn up the volume when you listen to this one!
