It's a Mighty Max...we used to have one.

They had a larger displacement motor, but I think the block was from the same DSM family.

That thing was floaty with stock horsepower...he's gonna have to put as much into suspension as motor or it will be very entertaining.

Here's a swap thread:

God I hope I'm wrong on this. Sounds like something that would get the judges' attention though.

It's either a Beetle or a Karmann Ghia, with an engine swap.

Since it's GRM fodder, I'm leaning towards Beetle.

MMs kick ***. I had one for about a year. You can pretty well bolt up a 4G63 or 4G64/G4CS into it. Some work to make the TB face right, but tons of room in the bay, and that thing weighs nothing. Mine had a 2.2L IIRC and it got up and moved much much better than my S10 does.
