    It's funny, my dad had a Vauxhall chevette back in the day. I do like shuvvits, I like the style & the novelty of a small rear wheel drive car. I'd love to get my mitts on a Vauxhall Chevette some day, maybe if I'm really lucky, a 2300HS with that wide-boy body kit, fat Avon alloys & that seventies-tastic tartan interior. That said, if I had enough money for one of those, I'd most likely buy a Talbot Sunbeam Lotus or try & track down a Vauxhall Firenza droop snoot. Cool car though but I'm curious about those asbestos laws, what are those all about? Most old cars will contain asbestos so is it like a cheeky 25 year rule thing?

    Martin, Moog, you guys are awesome. I would love to come to Australia to mod my cars. Sounds epic. Hey I do have a question, do you use a special strip for testing your coolant or is it just a pH test strip that you use?

    Have you consider the C20LET engine? I think you can find it in a Holden Calibra 2.0 16v turbo.

    Late comment, but what about electric. Go crazy with a fast all electric Gemini. You guys said you wanted to do one after the Daihatsu 2 parter a few years ago.

    I'm not gonna lie but I do hope it has a 4-cyl in it. Doesn't have to be turbo but just a 4-cyl. I actually saw one in the parking lot when I was in Fukuoka Stadium during one of their parking meet where it had a reworked AE101 7AGE and claimed to make 220hp. It was painted in midnight purple and on some SSR Type C wheel. It looked extremely good and sounds amazing with that NA high-reving Toyota engine. May be toss in a 4AGE too? Seldom see you guys tinker with Toyota engines tho.

    Please use small naturally aspirated V6 with carbs and distributor, no turbo, no tuner, toggle fuel and ignition, push button start, and 4 horns that together make a super loud 4 note full diminished chord.

    My first choice of engine for the Gemini would be 2.8 L V6 from the Pontiac Fiero or Chevy Cavalier especially if that is in fact a Chevette, but I don't know if that would fit. Or you could use electric motor and call it GE mini.

    NEW: Find a newish Ford Ecoboost (like from the Fiesta ST), OLDSCHOOL: Either pop in an FJ20 (stroked to FJ24) and turbo it. Failing that try and find a 1.6L/2L Cosworth motor from the Escort RS and drop that in.

    Since it was sold as a Buick in the us, you should put the legendary Buick v6 in it. If you can even get them in Australia. They love boost.
