This was initially bought to be my first car, but mechanical issues, electrical gremlins, and a whole lot of rust put a stop to that real quick. Considering engine swap ideas. Currently winning: a late model Suzuki GSX-R 1300 engine from a totaled bike. Plans for airbag suspension underway.

For $800, this is going to be a great project! Have you decided on what engine you're going to swap in?

I haven't decided yet - it's really going to come down to what I can source for relatively low cost. I'm leaning towards a motorcycle engine, mostly because it sounds fun and will make the car stand out from the thousands of red Beetles out there.
