I'd like to read that article. I've seen numerous V8 Chevettes at the drag strip over the years. I remember a very nice one that was street legal with a blown sbc. If I remember right, it ran in the 10's.
At one time I was going to build a rear engine, rear drive V8 Yugo using a standard 2wd tranny, boat V-drive, and regular rear end. That project never got off the ground.
There are several things about this project that make it different. The car is somewhat rare, it's very small, and I don't think it's been done before.
