with apologies to Ogden Nash...
I saw one of these once with a Ford 4 cyl. 1600cc Capri engine in the front. Looked real close to the original MG engine. Plenty of Ford 1600s around from Formula Ford racing.
Had a chance to take one for a spin with the VW motor. The driver/passengers were in the original VW back-seat location leaving the front-end very light. Did NOT steer well is my strongest memory and this was about 1974 or so. Felt like the front wheels were barely in contact with the pavement and sliding as much as rolling.
