Today in the 510 mailing list, some guy asked if you could put in some big muscly engine in a 510. A bunch of guys replied, begging him not to use a 510 since theyre getting harder and harder to find. Even though there were a bunch produced. few are left. Same thing with the AE86.
So, go out and buy a first gen RX-7 while theyre still cheap and plentifull. Do what you want with it. I have a feeling the 1st gen's are going to be more of a cult car as their numbers decline. Or get a Volvo 240 and drop a big muscly engine in that. Theres also the original MR2's and Rabbit GTI's.

Re: Buy them now, while you can! (RJetta8V)

Orig. MR2 is too slow in NA form, and expensive in S/C form.
I don't know anything about engine swaps for it, though.
1st gen RX7 GSL-SEs are already getting more expensive
