This is just dreaming as far as my skills or financial ability is concerned but I know there are many out there who have those skills. It is just that most people with those abilities have been dropping Chevy V-8s into something else to make them hotrods or street rods. I would like to see some of these skills going into seeing how fuel efficient they can make a car that is still fun to drive. That is why I love the dialogue that is going on at this site. That said, the idea of dropping a Polo or similar 3 cylinder turbo diesel into a Karmmin Ghia is interesting. If doing so, I would mount the radiator, cooling fans, battery etc up front to equalize the weight distribution. To put a diesel into a Shiracco or Porsche 914 (sold as a VW in Europe I understand) would probably be much easier.
