    Back in the early 70's I stuffed a 2.4 liter 911 into the back
    of the VW bus that was a towcar for the racecar trailer  8-)

    And, after the second time my ex burned the clutch out, it then
    became equipped with a type 3 full automatic transmission which
    managed to absorb the 6 cylinder power quite nicely.
