I was at a car show last year talking to a Corvair guy about his Crown V8 conversion and he was telling me about another Corvair project he had in the works. He described using a 300hp Cadillac Northstar power train and cradle just behind the rear seat. You retain the rear seat, but the transverse engine/trans package is more like a Fiero in size so you also end up with a good size trunk as well. In addition, the balance is better since not all the weight in the tail. Maybe we'll see it at the Turkey Run this year.
