Different idea...

I wasn't going to read that whole thread, but I saw one guy write: "Power to weight baby!!!"

WIth all the steel that guy has in it so the Civic body will support the twisting force there is no way it'* going to be near as light as the original Vette was. Just cause it'* a Civic, don't mean it'* the lightest thing out there.

I take it you haven't seen the solid balls-out fabricated chassis (albeit potentially heavy)... it'* essentially only Civic body panels

While it shows a lot of skill, imagination, and craftsmanship, who in their right mind would strip a Vette to build a Civic???
