So.....whatcha wanna know?

It is a VW Vokaro.
I have put a lot of tubing on it....scared of getting run over....it is so small/short.

It has a little 2.5L V6. Double over, 4 per.
A screamer....not high HP.

Box is a 901 5 speed.

Rear suspension is IRS

Front suspension is ball joint beam.

Working on the front end now.

As I have drop spindles, adjusters, a pie cut, and a body drop (moved Napoleon hat)....…even with 23 inch diameter tires it was a lot of cutting to make the car fit.

Trying to make a wide body look.
Of course they will be glassed in and smoothed out.....not screwed to the body.

Interesting engine and even more so the intake manifolds.
From which VW car came this 2,5 ltr V6 engine?

Somebody has seen a KL before.

The internet lore has Porsche as the engineer for hire that designed the original. This one in the pics is a later model engine used in Mazda's MX series cars (as opposed to the RX rotary series).

So the engine is Mazda
The trans is Porsche
The chassis is mostly mid engine dune buggy kit (unwelded)
The suspension is VW
And the body is a Vokaro made in California.
