Re: lightweight project car
MG Midget/Austin Healy Sprite - 800kgs
One of those was running as Australia's fastest four cylinder for a while, Think his name was Jeff Watson, and the sprite was running an FJ20. Good for 8sec quater mile times.
If you want the rear wheel drive, you would have to scratch the mini, starlet, civic and swift off your list.
'67 Mustang V8 4sp... what fun to drive!
