Reminds me of the one that JUSTA and I see running around Woodward. Power-to-weight ratio must be freaking awesome.

Big difference is engine placement and a whole lot more work to park the beast in the front.  I've known the family and the owner since he was JUSTA baby.  Make me feel old!  His dad is a master builder and I worked with his Mom on the line for Pontiac Motors back in the 70's.  They also built a front engine Corvair to prove to all it could be done and followed up with the Fiero.   His 1st Hot Rod was a MONSTER  VEGA.

Look at the tires in back! LOVE to see this thing at a track! No wheelie bars made me think the balance favors the front justa nuff.
