    Time to go hunting for pink slips, I suppose.

    That said, it isn't a terrible idea. Some of the fastest FWD drag cars as of a few years ago were swapped Honda Insights that greatly benefited from the body's low drag coefficient.

    Not going to be much of a sleeper with those rear tires and a Ford rear end hanging off the bottom...but PT Barnum is still right!
    I imagine they might have been money ahead just peeling the skin off of a G2 and grafting it onto an SRT8.

    It should make for an interesting ride though....

    You never know - a lot of money-on-the-table street drags seem to happen in not-so-well-lit parts of town.
