Wow!!  If the car is any indication the Marians are a pretty talented family.
One real problem with a car like this is that it can be a real handful to
handle with so much horsepower in such a short wheelbase. Even if you get on
it from a 50 or 60 mph roll.  But I could live with a problem like that.  And
with the light weight and modern engine control systems 25-30mpg is probably a
reasonable expectation.
Scenario--So you're cruising down I680 on a crisp March evening and this
slammed and flared Acura slides up beside you in the fast lane and hesitates
alongside. The kid driving it looks at you with the confidence that comes from
having spent his last two months salary in the engine shop. He-he-heee!!  This
one'll be like sucking up mosquitoes with a vacuum cleaner.

  Subject: DAD - Bugeye  Looks like
a really nice conversion; high quality work.  It looks totally stock from the
outside until you see the rear tires.
