Have you seen the Garage 54 channel on YouTube? Some crazy Russians who do all kinds of weird things to old Ladas, with an English voiceover translation.

They stuffed a big GAZ truck 7.0L V8 into one, another they connected two engines end to end to make it a straight 8, then a third engine for a straight 12. Adding a 4th for a straight 16 didn't work out so well, mostly because the old engines are old and tired. The craziest thing they did was buying a pair of doors and all the body panels, windshield frame and top for a Porsche roadster and mounting them on a Lada.
