Extreme! Now yer talkin.

Put ContiEcoContact EP 145/65R14's on it at 42-45 psi
Ditch the spare, front passenger seat, everything you don't need, like panels. Get a 1.5-inch hole saw and get creative.
Pull the rear doors. Pop rivet on aluminum sheet. Brace with spruce.
Keep the engine if compression is about the same across the cylinders. Use synthetic Mobil 1 (0-5w)
Install a knock warning gizmo
and fabricate a manual carb leaning adjustment with vernier knob on the dash.
Pull the battery and replace with LiPO FAQ about replacing lead acid with lithium battery
Keep the tranny. Replace fluid with spec synthetic, then replace again at 250 miles.
Lower it. Eibach Springs, Eibach Sportline Springs, Eibach Coil Springs
Fabricate air dam, side fences and rear wheel covers.
Install Ultragauge UltraGauge OBDII Scan tool & Information Center
Later: Pull rear hatch, fabricate boat tail.
Daytime driver? Pull alternator, charge bat every evening.
