A regular “back of the brain” dream project car is the idea of dropping the body of some small car over the chassis of a Miata to make a silly little pocket rocket.

Today I found this 1950's Lloyd Alexander estate, which looks epic, but is too small for the project. How small is two small you may ask? The wheelbase is ten inches smaller than a first-gen Miata. There literally is not enough car to make up the difference.
