You commute at 90mph in a civic every day?

My wife has a '79 Mini with a 1275 Cooper engine, cam, carb and head work. About 120 HP in a 1000 lbs. car....I'd say it's a sports car, and we have the 993 so yup two summer cars with a diesel GLK for the DD.

The only downside is not having AWD for those 8 months of Seattle drizzle. Lot of snow this past winter too.

Well done...i think this is the only RWB iíve ever seen that doesnít look completely ridiculous. Not that completely ridiculous is a bad thing, necessarily.

Car handles great in the rain. So no problem.

I donít drive in the snow. They never plow my street.

Thank you! I was very concerned with it looking cartoonish. I really wanted a more classic look. I left off the big wing and canards.

It also has the "go" to match the "show". The motor was punched out to 3.8 liters by Jeff Gamroth at Rothsport Racing to RS specs. We also re-geared the transmission to take advantage of the new power. It is a joy to drive and just begs to be revved.
