Well that vette was done for anyway. Might as well go for a project. I don't know if I would have choosen a civic body, but then again if I already had a civic body I would probably use it, especially considering the swap itself cost him <$1,000.

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.
Good point. They both have about the same wheel base, civic is a bit narrower and now has no back seats, but with that steel going in there it is hard to say. Looks like a 2000 Vette is around 3300lbs. Any idea what that civic weighs in at? I can't seem to find any numbers for it.

I think it'll be fun to watch this thing take off in my rearview mirror.
