A Track Day Terror!   In the spirit of the old Sillouhette days, a 1966 Bug with a Lamborghini LS500P V12 in the back.

That is just so cool, looks like it could be on the grid for a mid-70s Sports Sedan race, which had minimum restrictions and were popular here in Oz. I keep going back and checking over the photos again.  Nicely done. Cheers.

Very creative! Cool 'outside the box' building. There must have been a lot of cutting and hacking to get the big engine in that little car.

Wow!!! Must've had a TON of planning throughout that build. Gotta hand it to you for the imagination that went into it.

Being really stupid is the new smart!!

Thanks everybody!   A 'ton' of planning?  I wish Wink   I got the Bug kit for Fathers day, and couldn't decide what to do with it.  Then I saw the Lambo motor/trans and some miscellaneous parts in a bundle on Ebay and thought - AHA!!!!   I was surprised when I measured the distance from the shifter to the rear axle; the Lambo was not quite a millimeter longer!!  I used a lot of the Bug kit, including the wheels, front axle, rear swing arms and all the body trim.  Tha pan was cut behind the drivers seat and I fabbed a subframe and  the rear suspension.  I can asure you there was a lot of '2 steps forward-1 step back' in this project, but I even surprised myself with how it came out.
