    Way cool.

    Hey Im planning my Topo build at the moment and have some serious issues around space. Im big, and the car is small. I think my engine will be similarly placed to yours, and the firewall will be pretty much in the same place as your too. Do you have pikkys of the interior of your car that you can put up that show the placement of the pedal box relative to the seats and steering? Thanks, Todd

    Things are progressing with the Fiat nicely. This past weekend drove it for the first time. Out of the garage and a quick trip down the street and back. (need plates before I go to far) also did a few burnouts in the driveway. a lot of fun and a long time coming. made a video but can't get it to download. sorry

    Well it has been a while since I first contacted You !!! At that time You had the original chassis and running gear on eBay (I Think maybe 5 years ago). I keep looking at the thread and I think that You have done well. Be safe and enjoy the Fruits of Your Efforts......... Can't wait to see more..................... Later, Jeff
