Gordon Murray had the Midas, Herb Adams had the Jackrabbit. A VW Rabbit based kit car that shed all the pounds.

It is hideous but very cool

I had only read about them in "Chassis Engineering", never thought I'd see one. It is cheap but on the other side of the continent. I think a whole non running car is too much for a GRM relay. Somebody buy this vintage piece of watercooled VW history and save it!

Somebody needs to save this thing from the auto swap in progress. What a travesty

It looks interesting, but I did not see engine shots and that worries me.

Someone please buy this before I make the plunge.  Has a stock rabbit motor and in the middle of a swap to automatic tranny because the shift linkage is so bad.  Not titled, but includes title for donor car.
