There is a little hope at least.

So it is looking like the Vette is going to be a later down the road thing. Hopefully not too much closer to midlife crisis later, but later.

Now to start piling up parts.

I still have the vvt motor sitting in my garage. If you want to drive a fast miata, my uncle's (hhammerly here) just put down 340hp on fathouse's dyno last Wednesday..he would probably let you drive it at an autocross to see if that's the way you want to go.
