Well, my reasons for getting the car, in order of importance are: purchase price $500, lack of over complicating features such as engine control computers and such, ease of work since the engine compartment hasn't been compressed, classic style and character, interior room as i'm a kinda big guy and need the extra comfort space and I haul a lot of stuff pretty regularly. However, that said, I do agree with the value of your suggestion. My wife likes to refer to me as macgyver, seriously, fix one household appliance with duct tape and a wire coat hanger, lol... But actually I am very handy mechanically and have a wicked curiosity streak, so even I really can't say just what I may try with this car. I put some pics on my profile that give a rough idea of what I'm thinking about doing to the car aerodynamically, I invite everyone to take and look and let me know their thoughts, just please keep the criticism of my poor drawing skills to a minimum, lol.
