It's been on ebay off and on for a few years now by the same seller. Save up, I am sure it will still be for sale. I really think it looks stupid. The front tires were moved to far forward and don't sit anywhere close to center of the wheel well. Major overkill. A small block would have done the job and looked a lot better.

Thats why a small block would be better. Would not have to have push firewall back and front wheels forward. I know someone who is currently working on a small block neon. I can't wait to see it finished.

If you read the seller's description, he stretched the hood and front fenders 13 inches. It would be hard to make a "stretched car" a sleeper. Even with a small block,
your basic gain would be in the width of the engine. You might be able to retain the inside fender wells, but with rear drive and the engine almost as long as the big
block, you'd have to move the firewall back.
