    Actually the thought of putting the 5.9 and transmission from the Dakota in there eventually. The wagon in 4 cyl. trim weighs in around 2700#. I figure with adding and subtracting parts and what not a V-8 combo would probably have it around 3000# with roll bar. But I really want to get the Valiant done.

    How to make fake meteorites!:evilsmile:

    My wife's an Aries. She's usually firing on all 12 pistons when she yacks with her sisters.:biglaugh:

    Good thing you saved the motor mounts. Looks like the rest will go to clunker heaven.:D
