    I'd say just about any car you wanted...their not very big are they? :D

    :Welcome: aboard Matt91.

    After you have introduced yourself here you could re-ask this question in the General Wagon discussion thread, more folks will see your request there. Hope you find the real answer to your question. :wave:

    Welcome aboard! May be some work but put it in a 60's falcon wagon! That would be cool!

    As fannie wrote, go to The Welcome Wagon and introduce yourself. A fun forum to share and ask questions like you have. The answers will vary like us members differ.
    My answer would be to find a small vehicle like the Escort the engine is in. With a bit of welding or bolting, plus some modifications it should fit in anything with a similar space. Usually the front steering is the only clearance problems. Personally a Model A Ford or similar old car would be fun.

    This is not the welcome wagon. Matt was asking where to put his engine. I could have told him where to stick it but since he's new I'm trying to be polite.:whistle:
    And..................:90: I can read if I want to. But you can't make me do it! I'm not one of your rug rats.:mischeif:
