at our track the rules say it has to be 112" wheelbase. I think that excludes a lot of metric cars, right? I wish we could use metric here, I would like to build a mid-80's monte carlo.

I tell ya what; our track lets us run only 112 wheelbase or larger, and what I got is a 73 chevelle malibu with junkyard springs and a healthy 455 buick, and, the car is sooo easy to drive. We run 60 series imca mod take offs, and have a 510 dollar claim on the complete car less the safety equipment. Its a really fun time. I would highly recommend this car for a cruiser. It has worked out great for me.
