I don't know thats just me, it'* all want you want out of your car i supppose. Series 2 Supercharged isn't a bad option.. Sorry if i offended you at all, i didn't want to direct it like that..only a suggestion.
I actually kind of like the 87-91 bodystyle better.
I like the third gen style the best but those are too expensive.
I don't need a big car like the bonne for a daily driver which is one reason I am getting the Cooper. That and it handles better then just about any mass produced car on the market right now.
The 3000GT powertrain conversion will be a long project. It will probably take me a a year or so just to do all the design/engineering work. I already know everything will fit but making it fit in the right way will take a lot of engineering and fabrication.
If GM comes out with an Transverse based AWD powertrain that can support the kind of power the 3000GT can I will use it but I doubt they will. Even if they do it won't have all wheel steering.
Anyway we will see. I would have to buy a complete 3000 GT in order to do the conversion and right now a 320 HP 96 version runs around 8000 dollars in decent shape so this is a long time away in the future.
