Technically, yes; by clicking Thread Tools on top of the page and then selecting Subscribe to this thread.
Practically, I doubt it

I’d like to be driving it by the first weekend in October. As far as completion, I’ve never completed a project. There’s always something more I want to do. Satisfied in life just not in the builds.

Like on my project, the height of the body is going to be dictated by the structure around the front struts fitting under the Ghia's front fenders. It might stand tall using the Gen-II Prius as a starting point. A rolled-over Prius C might have been lower and have a shorter wheelbase. Either way it is going to be a fun ride!

Is it too late to roll over this Prius?
