http://salvagewon.com/ www.facebook.com/salvagew0n This thing looks kind of cool. I bet it would be a blast with a v-8. No worries about hood or tire clearances. You could probably source the "donor" for free.

This is cool! I've never heard of this "cut-down" uni body concept... definitely interesting...

It's a youtube show so you can watch it on your phone! LOL best show on any venue IMO. The first couple are not that great but watch 4 or 5 and you will never miss another.

If the road kill guys ever swapped a miata it would look just like mine!

Problem is he got the front half right but the cool factor stops at the fire wall. These guys need to get together!

I’m planning on doing a ghettocet Miat with a 3 inch lift once I’m done with the V8 swap. Should be a fun little car for the sand dunes.
